Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This wise book is the wonderful continuation of the bestselling Wouldn't Take Nothing for My Journey Now.

    

Even the Stars Look Lonesome is Maya Angelou talking of the things she cares about most. In her unique, spellbinding way, she re-creates intimate personal experiences and gives us her wisdom on a wide variety of subjects. She tells us how a house can both hurt its occupants and heal them. She talks about Africa. She gives us a profile of Oprah. She enlightens us about age and sexuality. She confesses to the problems fame brings and shares with us the indelible lessons she has learned about rage and violence. And she sings the praises of sensuality.

    

Even the Stars Look Lonesome imparts the lessons of a lifetime.
