by Maya Angelou

Every time I experience Angelou I fall in love all over again. I also cry, rage, gasp and laugh.
And I am always, but always, moved.
This, the first in her series of autobiographies tells the story of the child-Maya. How she turned out the way she did is testament to all sorts of strength the young, tall, skinny girl version of her had deep within herself.
I have to read the rest of the series because I am now invested in discovering how to become so much the best possible version of oneself.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by the author and I feel privileged to have heard her tell the start of her story.
I feel a bit bereft now though having finished it. The world feels too silent without her voice in it.
