Bought this book through amazon. I really enjoyed the first book "I know why the caged birds sing" and I'm currently reading the second book "Gather together in my name" with great pleasure :)

Maya Angelou captures my attention so much, and she has done so for many years now :) It all started with the poem "Phenomenal woman" when I was in my teens and I've been keeping an eye out for her writing since then. I'm looking forward to getting a chance to read this book.

God, I adore Maya Angelou... which seems to be my opening line whenever I write or talk about her writing ;)

I had - as I always have with Maya - a great time reading this book :) I cry and laugh with her... once I even laughed out loud on a train-fare, completely forgetting about the people around me! Unable to point out a favourite passage in the book, I will nevertheless tell you where I had people looking at me on the train: The way she portrayed the poor Mr. Julian was wonderful and I loved the "Mistress Maya, I am being Mr. Julian. It's I am loving you!". And the way Ethel and Martha respons to the sillyness of it all is priceless as well :)

A wonderful book!

This book kept me awake at nights during my week at work (cruise/cargo ship Finland-Sweden) when I should have been sleeping...
I enjoyed it very much! I love reading about Maya Angelou's exciting life!
