Reviews

"Engrossing and vital, rich and funny and wise . . . Angelou writes like a song, and like the truth."
-The New York Times Book Review

"The book is a gem. It presents a descriptive picture of the texture of the lives and times of many black people in the late forties before the dawn of civil rights. It is so insightful and funny-sad, you catch yourself remembering your own young adulthood."
-Chicago Tribune

"Rich, engaging . . . Angelou tells the story of this dauntless, reckless, foolish girl with few flourishes; it doesn't need them."
-The New Yorker

"Angelou's stature as a writer, a woman, a black, grows, walks tall."
--Kirkus Reviews

"A heroic and beautiful book."
--Cleveland Plain Dealer.

"This is the story of a great heroine who knows the meaning of a struggle and never loses her pride or dignity. Indeed, her story makes me proud of the human race."
--John Oliver Killens
