Publisher's Summary

Even the Stars Look Lonesome is Maya Angelou talking of the things she cares about most. In her unique, spellbinding way, she recreates intimate personal experiences and gives us her wisdom on a wide variety of subjects. She tells us how a house can both hurt its occupants and heal them. She talks about Africa. She gives us a profile of Oprah. She enlightens us about age and sexuality. She confesses to the problems fame brings and shares with us the indelible lessons she has learned about rage and violence. And she sings the praises of sensuality.

Even the Stars Look Lonesome imparts the lessons of a lifetime.

    Story
    "A short Inspiring and Touching book"
    Would you listen to Even the Stars Look Lonesome again? Why?

    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.
