Most Helpful

Funny, emotive, real, sincere, beautiful book

I was surprised by the amount of humour I would glean whilst listening to Maya tell her tales. This woman is truly gifted with the art of vernacular. She spins her mouth around countless words and phrases that can only be uniquely out together by one individual. I salute you Maya Angelou. Rest in eternal peace.
