S The Poet In the poet in that forces such a beautiful choice of words Aside from the beautiful language she has this easy charming approach which keeps Un monstre dans les céréales you hooked and hungry for This attractive formula always works for me and guarantees my love for a bookThe story of her life Never a dull moment It s a roller coaster with all the melodrama she s been through in such a little age It goes on and gets darker Rita that s short for Marguerite is now 17ears old with her baby boy post WWII I ll admit that her history with prostitution shocked me She puts herself out there naked sans sugarcoating to the public eye without being afraid of judgment and without losing her hilarious touch but that s her style extremely truthful with a pinch of humor She s real blunt unapologetic and that s why I adore her Maya Angelou s Autobiographies 1 I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings2 Gather Together in My Name3 Singin and Swingin and Gettin Merry Like Christmas4 The Heart of a Woman5 All God s Children Need Traveling Shoes6 A Song Flung Up to Heaven I enjoyed this than Angelou s first memoir which won t be a surprise to anyone who knows my tastes because in this book she s a teenageryoung adult while in the first she was a child Adults make for active protagonists while children are passive So I enjoyed the content and therefore appreciated the writing It s a short uick read and kept me engaged though as in the first book events sometimes seem disconnected from each other and Angelou s tone can be so wry and detached that it s hard to tell how the events of her life affected her when she does write about her feelings there s often a sense of amusement behind it I wanted a little especially since some of the events are so outlandish they re hard to believe A Naive Teenager Stumbles Into naive teenager stumbles into a brothel and pressuring a couple of part time hookers into staffing it Whaaaaat Clearly creative license is being taken hence all that dialogue that moves the story along so uickly and I wonder just how much But regardless this is an enjoyable book with a strong voice and a fresh perspective Dr Angelou has a way of beating Nam you up that makesou thankful for getting that ass whupped Gather together in my name the religious overtones guide the reader into a false sense of security before the late great Dr Angelou drops an anvil on Painting Landscapes from Your Imagination your head This brief little glimpse into the life of a veryoung woman between the ages of seventeen and twenty this twinkle of an eye to keep up with the religious tone is hell on earth for this oung woman A cook a chef a pimp and a prostitute She came close to serving her country but the country was too stupidly fearful of an idea to allow her in She was armed solely with her intelligence And sh.

With both wisdom and wonder as she brings us along in her struggle and dance through life a heroic and beautiful book Cleveland Plain Dealer This is the story. This is the darkest in Maya Angelou s anthology and one I hadn t read before so I was shocked when she came to the brink of prostitution and actually jumped So many times in the book particularly when she s nearly enlisted in the Army I thought I didn t know she was a soldier and then found out what happened So when it came to her *sleazy older boyfriend saying he needed some help crawling out of a financial mess I thought she would somehow wake *older boyfriend saying he needed some help crawling out of a financial mess I thought she would somehow wake from the nightmare Even when she was naked and facing her first customer I waited for that moment when she d run downstairs and outside She did notShe describes both running a whorehouse and working as a whore with unflinching directness Although when Wachten op Apollo you think of the Maya Angelou we all know now it s hard to picture her being duped by the sleazeball characters it only makes me admire what this woman has built of her life She is so incredibly independent that each of her adventures reads like a racy novel Her life is melodrama Luckily for us she doesn t write it that wayThis is the school of hard knocks and Ms Angelou describes it all Her meandering through jobs and men is sometimes so painful that I had to think She s Maya Angelou She s going to be okay There are passages that leaveou thinking Our poet laureate went through this And wrote about it Her life and writing is a bravura performance I can t think of anyone else in her categoryI only gave this one less star because to me this book felt like part of the greater work that perhaps needed a book in front or behind to make it feel like a complete work Take that with a grain of salt I know all her work and could refer back and forth so perhaps it just felt that way to me because I have the whole picture Like everything she to me
"because i have "I have whole picture Like everything she this book is not just a great piece of literature and a wonderful read it s part of American history that ou shouldn t miss rough patches and allAs usual through her ups and downs she is one class act I love this woman with all my heart Her writing style her way of crafting a story her life This volume was a bit sadder than the previous ones but what a great read I read I know why the caged bird sings a long while ago and Maya Angelou told her remarkable life story This follows on and it s eually well writtenIn this book she s a teen mum living initially in SFO She finds work as a cook falls in love and it doesn t work out and heads for LA before a diversion to San Diego and Oklahoma She takes short term jobs cooking and waitressing to help her raise her son Somewhere in this story she at 18 runs a brothel The blurb tells ou she dabbles in drugs and in Oakland she dabbled in prostitution before her brother brings her to her senses She also falls in love left right and centre but all are bad newsThe story is again remarkable and very well written If anything shocked me it was her leaving her son with virtual strangers for long periods of time whilst she worked I guess times and communities have changed at least they have in my experience and now we don t have mamas who take in people s kids and virtually raise them with the mother visiting on her day off I liked seeing this refl. In Gather Together In My Name Maya Angelou continues her stunning autobiography By turns hilarious and heartbreaking passionate and mellow she fills the pages.
