Angelou never disappoints

Although Maya Angelou never truly disappoints, I was not quite as taken with this book as I have been with the others. I ordered it when she passed, hoping to consider myself among the "daughters" to whom she dedicated the book.

And while there was much in it that I "got" and appreciated, I expected something more, or, at least, different. I suppose that's more "my bad" than hers. Nonetheless, I would recommend it. After all, it's Maya Angelou. Reading anything of hers is a privilege and sort of like sitting down at her kitchen table for a visit.
