Description
Returning to the memoir decades after her six-volume autobiography practically re-invented the form, Maya Angelou here charts the most formative relationship of her life in this stirring portrait. Vivian Baxter was an indomitable spirit whose petite size belied her larger-than-life presence. When her marriage began to crumble, Baxter sent three-year-old Maya and her brother to live with their grandmother in Stamps, Arkansas. The subsequent feelings of abandonment stayed with Angelou for years, but their reunion a decade later began a journey of healing and love, evolving between the two women over the course of their lives and fostering Angelou's rise to seemingly impossible heights. Awarded the National Medal of Arts, the Lincoln Medal, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, as well as more than 50 honorary degrees, Angelou has left an indelible impression on American culture and society, largely through her seven volumes of autobiography (beginning with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings in 1969), her essay collections, and her poetry, plays, and screenplays.

"Mom & Me & Mom is delivered with Angelou's trademark good humor and fierce optimism. If any resentments linger between these lines, if lives are partially revealed without all the bitter details exposed, well, that is part of Angelou's forgiving design. As an account of reconciliation, this little book is just revealing enough, and pretty irresistible."Washington Post
