Fabulous book


I love this book. I've come to Maya Angelou late in life. She is an inspirational gift.





One of my most treasured books. Beautiiful, heartbreaking and deeply moving. Insightful in the wounding of a very young Retie and the strength of the wise Maya from the very first page to the very last...

A very rich autobiography.


A very enriching read about the American blacks and their history through Maya Angelou's autobiography.

"This testimony from a black sister marks the beginning of a new era in the minds and hearts of all black men and women. . . . I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings liberates the reader into life simply because Maya Angelou confronts her own life with such a moving wonder, such a luminous dignity. I have no words for this achievement, but I know that not since the days of my childhood, when the people in books were more real than the people one saw every day, have I found myself so moved. . . . Her portrait is a biblical study in life in the midst of death."--James Baldwin

"Simultaneously touching and comic."--The New York Times

"It is a heroic and beautiful book."--The Plain Dealer

"Maya Angelou is a natural writer with an inordinate sense of life and she has written and exceptional autobiographical narrative . . . a beautiful book--an unconditionally involving memoir for our time or any time."--Kirkus Reviews
