For the first time, Maya Angelou reveals the triumphs and struggles of being the daughter of Vivian Baxter, an indomitable spirit whose petite size belied her larger-than-life presence - a presence absent during much of Angelou's early life. When her marriage began to crumble, Vivian famously sent three-year-old Maya and her older brother away from their California home to live with their grandmother in Stamps, Arkansas. Their reunion a decade later began a story that has never before been told.… (mere)

If you're interested in Maya Angelou's life this is a good book to read. It tells a lot about her life in relation to her mother. They had a trouble relationship at times and a wonderful one at others. ( )

I read this too quickly. The short snappy style is wonderful to allow Maya Angelou's voice to punch through the page, but is best heard in smaller doses. However it's impossible to put down as you just want more and more.... remarkable people, remarkable times. And such hearts and minds. ( )

In this volume Angelou retells retells some of the stories from her earlier volumes, all themed as per the title. I’ve not checked to see how much she quotes verbatim. I actually put off reading this because I’d though the previous volume, A Song Flung Up to Heaven, was a bit diffuse. No such problem here. We’re a long way from the artistic perfection of Caged Bird, but still very enjoyable. The star of the show is Angelou’s mother, Vivian Baxter, a gun-toting, whiskey-drinking, part-time lesbian, as rich in contradiction as her daughter. Something of Angelou’s personality also comes through and there are some funny moments and some moments you might find inspiring if you worship the Doctor. ( )

"Love heals. Heals and liberates. I use the word love, not meaning sentimentality, but a condition so strong that it may be that which holds the stars in their heavenly positions and that which causes the blood to flow orderly in our veins.”

I read this after reading a very intense psychological thriller and it was precisely what I needed.

I loved how easy Maya Angelou is to read and I found myself just absolutely consuming it. She's the right measure of candid and compassionate. Although I've only read two of her works before (Still I Rise and Letters to My Daughter) I have read a few of the chapters in this book before, so I can see why people who've read everything she's ever written would be a little disappointed in this book.

But it was exactly what I needed after reading such a difficult book and Maya Angelou is so warm it feels like you're talking to a friend rather than reading a book. ( )

I loved this memoir of Angelou's relationship with her mother, especially as read by the author. ( )

The first decade of the twentieth century was not a great time to be born black and poor and female in St. Louis, Missouri, but Vivian Baxter was born black and poor, to black and poor parents.
