I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou pours her heart and soul into the pages of I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings.  She opens a window into her life that leaves the reader feeling voyeuristic and inspired at that same time.  Spanning her life from her childhood in Stamps, Arkansas to the birth of her son when she’s sixteen I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings leaves the reader anxious for the next book of Ms. Angelou’s life.  You can feel the dirt on your feet, smell Sunday dinner, and feel the silence of Angelou’s self imposed muteness.  Maya Angelou has a way with words captures the reader’s imagination.
