    Maya Angelou, Author of I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings; a life-changing book for me.

    "The Heart of a Woman" is filled with unforgettable vignettes of famous people, from Billie Holiday to Malcolm X, but perhaps the most important is the story of Maya Angelou's relationship with her son. Because this book chronicles, finally, the joys and burdens of a black mother in America and how the son she had cherished so intensely and worked for so devotedly finally grows to be a man.

    James Baldwin and Maya Angelou, now there is a true literary meeting of the minds.

Sheep lice do not seem to share this longing, which is one reason why they write so little. But we do. We have so much we want to say and figure out." - Bird by Bird, by Anne Lamott

    The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough - I LOVED this book and the miniseries.
