"Maya Angelou writes like a song, and like the truth." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Everything about Maya Angelou is transcendental. She has something to tell you now. Listen." (The Washington Post Book World)
I read this book when it first came out years ago. However, to hear it in the voice of our Dear Maya, takes on a completely enriching tone. She has transitioned the physical world, but like the pyramids, she still stands tall among the best! Giving, teaching us pearls of real life.
Yes, there are so many gems of wisdom and to see how Maya handled various challenges in her life. There is a story Maya shares about leaving her home when she was 17 and with a 3 month old baby. The advice her mother gave her was priceless. No spoiler here, you have to hear Maya tell it in her own words.
