Sintesi dell'editore

Even the Stars Look Lonesome is Maya Angelou talking of the things she cares about most. In her unique, spellbinding way, she recreates 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.

A gift

I read this book when it first came out years ago. However, to hear it in the voice of our Dear Maya, takes on a completely enriching tone. She has transitioned the physical world, but like the pyramids, she still stands tall among the best! Giving, teaching us pearls of real life.

A short Inspiring and Touching book

Would you listen to Even the Stars Look Lonesome again? Why?

Yes, there are so many gems of wisdom and to see how Maya handled various challenges in her life. There is a story Maya shares about leaving her home when she was 17 and with a 3 month old baby. The advice her mother gave her was priceless. No spoiler here, you have to hear Maya tell it in her own words.

Funny, emotive, real, sincere, beautiful book

I was surprised by the amount of humour I would glean whilst listening to Maya tell her tales. This woman is truly gifted with the art of vernacular. She spins her mouth around countless words and phrases that can only be uniquely out together by one individual. I salute you Maya Angelou. Rest in eternal peace.
