#autobiography completed #jennyis30.

Audiobook is narrated by Maya herself, which makes it 10x better than anyone else.

Also #bannedbook for #booked2020 @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage

4 1/2 ⭐

Cinfhen I‘ve been meaning to read the Maya Angelou / would it work for classic??? 5d
jenniferw88 @Cinfhen probably, but it would do literary or possibly feminism... 5d
Cinfhen I might have used those already... I‘ll check my board 5d

Maya Angelou lived such a complicated and brave life, and this book outlines some amazing twists and turns throughout her life...all backed with her mother‘s guidance and support.

I loved listening to the story of how Marguerite got shortened to Maya today!

Unfortunately I have just got to the part where she was raped by Mr Freeman age 8 - but they've just arrested him so I'm hoping things cheer up for her now. From what I know of the book I don't think it's likely though. 🙁

CafeMom Such a great book but a heartbreaking story. 2w

You have my respect Maya Angelou!!! Although I enjoyed the second memoir more, this one moved me through an understanding of her childhood, it‘s fun (preach it!) and horrors (Mr Freeman). An amazing voice, formidable intelligence, fabulous humour and determination of spirit. It is no wonder that she was such a force for civil rights. Next for me: a whole anthology of her poetry, yes, yes please. Best anthology recommendations?

thereflectiveflaneur How wonderful is the memoir! You have to listen to her read it though! Stunning! Let me know what your fav poems are! I adore her poetry. (edited) 4w
thereflectiveflaneur I can bring in my anthology of her poems to work in January. 4w
MariettaSG That would be great - to borrow your anthology @thereflectiveflaneur 4w

Beautifully written... definitely recommend the audio version, as it is read by Maya, herself. Such a said tale, though you feel as though you are reliving it with her.

This is a shoutout to Nathan, thereflectiveflaneur! who shares my love for Maya Angelou plus more. If you are after valuable reviews on all things literature and theatre follow him!!! I believe he has a blog coming too.
