About this item

"I gave birth to one child, a son, but I have thousands of daughters. You are Black and White, Jewish and Muslim, Asian, Spanish speaking, Native Americans and Aleut. You are fat and thin and pretty and plain, gay and straight, educated and unlettered, and I am speaking to you all. Here is my offering to you." This is how poet and sage Maya Angelou introduces her collection of short essays, poems, and thoughts. Working in the creative memoir form of which she has been the queen since her debut with I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS in 1969, Angelou looks back at her life's adventures, lessons, ups, and downs in this work, giving her dedicated readers profound insights and poetic nuggets. Published in Angelou's 80th year, this is a beautiful and generous celebration of a rightfully celebrated artist.
A collection of short essays includes personal reminiscences, hard-won wisdom, and inspirational ideas.
