I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings Hardback



Maya Angelou's seven volumes of autobiography are a testament to the talents and resilience of this extraordinary writer.

Loving the world, she also knows its cruelty. As a Black woman she has known discrimination and extreme poverty, but also hope, joy,achievement and celebration.

In this first volume of her six books of autobiography, Maya Angelou beautifully evokes her childhood with her grandmother in the American south of the 1930s.

She learns the power of the white folks at the other end of town and suffers the terrible trauma of rape by her mother's lover.
