What an interesting life of Maya Angelou. Starting in the 1950's
in black America. Her story is filled with unforgettable characters with Maya front and center as one very unforgetable character. She met and worked with some very famous people along the way. It was the start of Maya's multi talented list of careers. The honest and sometimes very sad stories of the the ups and downs along the way with men breaking her heart.
She lead a busy life, starting one career after another, alone most of the time,bringing up her only son. I highly recomend this book.

Anything that Maya Angelou writes is poignant and well written - this personal narrative tells about her relationships with both famous people and those who are closest to her heart - her son, especially.

the 4th volume of her autobiography-excellent as she always is.
reviewed Heart of a Woman on + 367 more book reviews
Filled with unforgettable vignettes of famous characters, from Billie Holiday to Malcolm X, The Heart of a Woman sings with Maya Angelou's eloquent prose--her fondest dreams, her deepest disappointments, and her dramatically tender relationship with her rebellious teenage son. Vulnerable, humorous, tough, Maya speaks with an intimate awareness of the heart within us all.

In the 4th volume of her highly acclaimed autobiography, Maya Angelou continues one of the most remarkable - and inspiring - personal narratives of our age.

As The Heart of a Woman begins, her turbulent life breaks wide open with hoy as the singer-dancer enters the razzle-dazzle of fabulous NYC. There, at the Harlen Writers Guild, her love for writing blazes anew.

Excellent book - Great writer and woman.

As always, a beautifully written book by Miss Angelou.

I don't normally like biographies/autobiographies. But I'm changing my tune.

She writes well. Very real. Very true. It is her emotions and her life out there. Takes courage to write something like this.

This book makes me think. Makes me think about racial relations and how deep it runs.

Time that this book covers....She works part of the time with Martin Luther King, Jr (in a ny chapter). Meets with Malcolm X. Works to further the civil rights movement and spends part of the time in Africa.

She talks about her life/son/marriage in with the history.

I didn't like this book. It seemed to be rather dry. The old adage of "too much information!" applies here. It's good for a history of her life ,however.

"Verve, nerve and joy in her own talents effervesce throughout this book"--Julian O'Faolain

"Maya Angelou's five books of autobiography [this is book 4] are a testament to the talents and resilience of an extraodinary writer!"

A wonderful book.
