We begin on Mom Reads with one of the greatest authors the world has ever known, exploring her own relationship with her mother. Mom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou is best read before approaching her autobiography I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings as it offers some important backstory.
This is a chronicle of both the complexity of a parent-child relationship and also the unwavering connection and support a mother can offer a child. It’s a fantastic book and one that should be on every mom’s bookshelf.
Kirkus Reviews has this to say about the celebrated book:
“True to her style, [Angelou’s] writing cuts to the chase with compression and simplicity, and there in the background is a calypso smoothness, flurries and showers of musicality between the moments of wickedness… A tightly strung, finely tuned memoir about life with her mother.”
The beauty of this work is unmistakable. Maya Angelou is a goddess among female authors for very good reason.
You can find Mom & Me & Mom on Amazon either in Kindle format or in secondhand paperback and hardback as it is currently between print runs.
