Description
When this first of her six autobiographical books was published in 1969, 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.

"This testimony from a black sister marks the beginning of a new era in the minds and hearts of all black men and women.... I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings liberates the reader into life simply because Maya Angelou confronts her own life with such a moving wonder, such a luminous dignity. I have no words for this achievement, but I know that 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
