Nuria Ranking: #4,879 in Books
From this best-selling author comes a marvelous collection of poetry. Poems of love and regret, of racial strife and confrontation, songs of the people and songs of the heart – all are charged with Maya Angelou’s zest for life and her rage at injustice.
Lyrical, tender poems of longing, wry glances at betrayal and isolation combine with a fierce insight into ‘hate and hateful wrath’ in an unforgettable picture of the hopes and concerns of one of America’s finest contemporary Black writers.
