The third title in Maya Angelou's bestselling six-volume autobiography is reissued in a new look to coincide with the publication of her new book
Maya Angelou's five volumes of autobiography are a testament to the talents and resilience of this extraordinary writer. Loving the world, she also knows its cruelty. As a black woman she has known discrimination and extreme poverty, but also hope, joy, achievement and celebration. In this her third marvellous volume, music and her son are the focus of Maya Angelou's life. She is on the edge of a new world: marriage, show business and a triumphant tour of 'Porgy and Bess'.
'She sees everything with an eye full of relish' HILARY BAILEY, GUARDIAN 'Once again the reader must marvel at this gifted woman's spirit and resistance and applaud the gusto with which she recaptures a past that has been plagued by indignities as often as it has been blessed by love' OBSERVER 'Maya Angelou is an inspiration' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
