Description
This collection of essays, first published in 1993, is Maya Angelou speaking from the heartódown-to-earth and real, yet as inspiring as she is in her poetry and autobiographical work. Here she talks about being in all ways a woman, about living well, about the power of the word, and about the power of spirituality to move and shape your life. Passionate, lively, and lyrical, it offers a gem of truth on every page. 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 (beginning with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings in 1969), her essay collections, and her poetry, plays, and screenplays.

"In this small gem of a book, Angelou ... shares her thoughts about humankind: how to respect others of different cultures, opinions, and values as taught by universal philosophies. Annie Johnson in 'New Directions' and Aunt Tee in 'Living Well, Living Good' are just some of the characters Angelou uses throughout to illustrate with precision and color the respect and perseverance she values. The narratives are carefully constructed with exhilarating assurance as the reader makes the transformative journey from what she is to what she must finally be. Angelou's prose is brisk, fluid, and entrancing. This work will provide a taste of wisdom to all who read it."óLibrary Journal
