Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A Song Flung Up to Heaven" opens as Maya Angelou returns from Africa to the United States to work with Malcolm X and later Martin Luther King, Jr., who are both soon assassinated. Devastated, she tries to put her life back together. This book ends as Angelou begins to write the first sentences of "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings."

About the Author

Poet, writer, performer, teacher, and director Maya Angelou was raised in Stamps, Arkansas, and then went to San Francisco. In addition to her bestselling autobiographies, beginning with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, she has also written five poetry collections, including I Shall Not Be Moved and Shaker, Why Dont You Sing?, as well as the celebrated poem “On the Pulse of Morning,” which she read at the inauguration of President William Jefferson Clinton.
