Mom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou is the first book by Maya Angelou that I have ever read. I am not a big poetry reader so I have never really picked up her books. However, this is a partial memoir by Angelou that tells of her relationship with her mother and the things she learned.
When I started reading, the voice quickly brought me into the work. It reads like fiction. I kept thinking, fact is stranger than fiction. The things that happened to the author seem like something straight out of a fictional family saga.
I learned some about the author that I didn’t know. I was inspired by her mother’s strength and flaws. We all make mistakes, but we do not have to let them get us down. We all have something we want to achieve in life and there is no reason we can’t go after it AND attain it.
I enjoyed this book and I will look into Maya Angelou’s I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.
I recommend this book.
