Description

Two-time Grammy Award-winner Maya Angelou performs her memorable fourth volume of autobiography, which began so auspiciously with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. The Heart of a Woman sings with Maya Angelou's eloquent prose and is filled with unforgettable vignettes of famous people, from Billie Holiday to Malcolm X. Even more central is Maya Angelou's chronicle of the joys and the burdens of being a black mother in America and how the son she has cherished so intensely and worked for so devotedly finally grows to be a man.

A Real Woman's point of view

She is exceptional. Direct, soft, hard, savy, resourceful, a real woman with a great point of view. Through all her pain and suffering she can still stand tall and tell her real story. Amazing woman.

Loved it.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Heart of a Woman to be better than the print version?

Yes, because to hear Ms Angelou's own voice makes it so much more interesting. If that's even possible.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both!

Wisdom flows from auntie Maya Angelou

I loved listening to Maya’s soothing voice. She is a story-teller perfectionist! I’m learning so much from her wisdom!

Mesmerizing

The author performs in a way no no else could. The honesty at times is heartbreaking because of its relatability.

short, but sweet

I love hearing Maya's voice. I am also a mother and it touched my heart in a way only a mother knows.
