A memoir about motherhood and music from the bestselling author of I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS

'A brilliant writer, a fierce friend and a truly phenomenal woman' BARACK OBAMA

Maya Angelou's seven volumes of autobiography are a testament to the talents and resilience of this extraordinary writer. Loving the world, she also knows its cruelty. As a black woman she has known discrimination and extreme poverty, but also hope, joy, achievement and celebration.

In her third marvellous volume, music and her son are the focus of Maya Angelou's life. She is on the edge of a new world: marriage, show business and a triumphant tour of Porgy and Bess.

'She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace . . . She will always be the rainbow in my clouds' OPRAH WINFREY

'She was important in so many ways. She launched African American women writing in the United States. She was generous to a fault. She had nineteen talents - used ten. And was a real original. There is no duplicate' TONI MORRISON

A brilliant writer, a fierce friend and a truly phenomenal woman

The poems and stories she wrote . . . were gifts of wisdom and wit, courage and grace

She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace . . . She will always be the rainbow in my clouds

She was important in so many ways. She launched African American women writing in the United States. She was generous to a fault. She had nineteen talents - used ten. And was a real original. There is no duplicate

Once again the reader must marvel at this gifted woman's spirit and resistance and applaud the gusto with which she recaptures a past that has been plagued by indignities as often as it has been blessed by love - Observer

Maya Angelou is an inspiration - Independent on Sunday

She sees everything with an eye full of relish - Guardian
