I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
By Maya Angelou, with Foreword by Oprah Winfrey
Superbly told, with the poet's gift for language and observation, Angelou's autobiography of her childhood in racially charged Arkansas in the 1930s brings to vivid life a world which most Americans had no idea existed.
