More About the Author

Dr Maya Angelou was one of the world's most important writers and activists. Born 4 April 1928, she lived and chronicled an extraordinary life: rising from poverty, violence and racism, she became a renowned author, poet, playwright, civil rights' activist - working with Malcolm X and Martin Luther King - and memoirist. She wrote and performed a poem, 'On the Pulse of Morning', for President Clinton on his inauguration; she was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama and was honoured by more than seventy universities throughout the world.

She first thrilled the world with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969). This was followed by six volumes of autobiography, the seventh and final volume, Mom & Me & Mom, published in 2013. She wrote three collections of essays; many volumes of poetry, including His Day is Done, a tribute to Nelson Mandela; and two cookbooks. She had a lifetime appointment as Reynolds Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest University of North Carolina. Dr Angelou died on 28 May 2014.

'A brilliant writer, a fierce friend and a truly phenomenal woman' President Barack Obama

'The poems and stories she wrote . . . were gifts of wisdom and wit, courage and grace' President Bill Clinton

'She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace . . . She will always be the rainbow in my clouds' Oprah Winfrey

'She was important in so many ways. She launched African American women writing in the United States. She was generous to a fault. She had nineteen talents - used ten. And was a real original. There's no duplicate. There is no duplicate' Toni Morrison

Format: Hardcover
Maya Angelou has been an important American voice for many years and readers have gotten used to the fact that each of her books opens for them new perspectives. Angelou uses a variety of genres but her wisdom and wit fill each of the volumes she penned.
This book is no different - the essays combine to draw a very personal view of the world. This is a view as seen by a woman, a mother - it is warm, human, and private. Sometimes they are funny, sometimes sad - what they always share is honesty and wisdom.
When you can listen to a wise person, you should not miss the chance. There are very few people such as Maya Angelou - their voices should be listened to very attentively.

The best way to describe this book is this: all the wisdom you want to pass onto the daughters in your life give them this book. She is an icon, a genius and a mother - I consider all her works a national treasure.

As usual Maya Angelou doesn't disappoint an interesting, enlightling and moving read, her wisdom is boundless yet she is kind, honest and endearingly human sharing some of her experiences through her long colourful life to pass on to her daughter...for whoever she is or whereever she's from or whatever age she happens to be ... Maya is a wonderful mentor who I would love to meet, such a beautiful soul.

I found this to be a very readable book that flowed easily. A short read, interesting enough to prompt me to try further book by the same author.

Lovely collection of motherly advice. Ms Angelou through her fantastic story telling ability relays some useful advice, without being preachy.

An easy read. Full of interesting facts about Maya's life. I do like Maya's writing style. Just like the fact she uses her life experiences to give others something to think about. Just in the same way a mother or grandmother would do. Would make a good gift too, to a teenager.
