A marvellous collection of poetry from the beloved and bestselling author of I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS.

‘A brilliant writer, a fierce friend and a truly phenomenal woman’ BARACK OBAMA

Poems of love and regret, of racial strife and confrontation, songs of the people and songs of the heart – all are charged with Maya Angelou’s zest for life and her rage at injustice. Lyrical, tender poems of longing, wry glances at betrayal and isolation combine with a fierce insight into ‘hate and hateful wrath’ in an unforgettable picture of the hopes and concerns of one of America’s finest writers.

‘She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace . . . She will always be the rainbow in my clouds’ OPRAH WINFREY

‘She was important in so many ways. She launched African American women writing in the United States. She was generous to a fault. She had nineteen talents – used ten. And was a real original. There is no duplicate’ TONI MORRISON
