Narrated by Maya Angelou.
Um, I had thought this book was a book of poetry. Perhaps because all I really thought I knew about Maya Angelou is that she was a poet? I really am not that familiar with her but have no reason not to admire her. This book proves that she is the product of some fabulous female influences and strong personal will to survive horrific and unfortunate experiences.
This is a memoir of her first 18 years. (In case anyone else also thought it was a book of poetry.)
I may not go out of my way to listen to her narrate any other works of literature but having her read her own words was just fine for me.
Rating: Five slices of pie.
