Gather Together In My Name – Maya Angelou’s autobiography. VOLUME 2.
It is mesmerizing how this author would take you through a series of her American past as though it were your own.
I have to read, but I have to admit. Maya Angelou is, if not the best I have read. [That woman was the definition of Narration and talent.]
So I grabbed this book Wednesday Morning at 10AM and it kept me all but pinned down to my seat until I finished it at 2pm. There is an aura in her literature. The narratives are excellent, and I would be lying if I claimed to have words to describe it.
PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE BOOK DESCRIPTION BELOW
[Gather Together in My Name continues Maya Angelou’s personal story, begun so unforgettably in I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. The time is the end of World War II and there is a sense of optimism everywhere. Maya Angelou, still in her teens, has given birth to a son. But the next few years are difficult ones as she tries to find a place in the world for herself and her child. She goes from job to job–and from man to man. She tries to return home–back to Stamps, Arkansas–but discovers that she is no longer part of that world. Then Maya’s life takes a dramatic turn, and she faces new challenges and temptations.
In this second volume of her poignant autobiographical series, Maya Angelou powerfully captures the struggles and triumphs of her passionate life with dignity, wisdom, humor, and humanity..
Now you’ve read about it. I suggest you grab the copy as soon as possible and if you’re already a reader, you sure by now should be aware of Maya’s enormous significance in Global literature.
