Description
In her second volume of autobiography, following the unprecedented I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Maya Angelou continues her remarkable personal story. The time is the end of World War II, and Angelou, still in her teens, has given birth to a son. America in the latter 1940s is buoyed by a sense of optimism, but these years are difficult ones for Angelou as she tries to find a place in the world for herself and her child. She goes from job to job and from man to man, and tries to return home to Stamps, Arkansas, but discovers that she is no longer part of that world. Awarded the National Medal of Arts, the Lincoln Medal, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, as well as more than 50 honorary degrees, Angelou has left an indelible impression on American culture and society, largely through her seven volumes of autobiography, her essay collections, and her poetry, plays, and screenplays.

"A curiously heartening story in which decency, honor, truth, love do exist, imperfectly, fractionally and flickeringly, not in some Platonic realm of the ideal, but in the flawed lives of real men and women."Washington Post

"Engrossing and vital, rich and funny and wise.... Angelou writes like a song, and like the truth."NYTBR
