Description
When this first of her series of autobiographical books was published in 1969ócovering her life up to the age of 17, in 1944óthe late Maya Angelou garnered the attention of an international audience with the pangs and lessons of her childhood in the American South. Presented here in a fine paperback edition with deckled pages, her book captures the longing of lonely children, the brute insult of bigotry, and the wonder of words that can make the world right. Angelou was awarded the National Medal of Arts, the Lincoln Medal, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, as well as more than 50 honorary degrees; she left an indelible impression on American culture and society, largely through her seven volumes of autobiography, five essay collections, and her poetry, plays, and screenplays.

"This testimony ... liberates the reader into life simply because Maya Angelou confronts her own life with such a moving wonder, such a luminous dignity.... 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."óJames Baldwin
