Professional reviews

"The life of poet, bestselling author, and teacher Maya Angelou is celebrated with a review of her compelling experiences and remarkable accomplishments. Her story of triumph over difficult circumstances and lifelong creative excellence will inspire listeners. Dion Graham's engaging voice lends modulation and expression throughout, and he excels at characterizing Angelou's speech. The book is composed of quotes from Angelou's writing, as well as from articles published about her. This approach requires Graham to read citations of the sources, which disrupt the flow; however, he handles this chore as well as any narrator could. Intended as a tribute to Angelou, this book is a good introduction, but serious fans will want to read her wonderful series of autobiographical works. J.J.B (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
