Publisher's Summary

Even the Stars Look Lonesome is Maya Angelou talking of the things she cares about most. In her unique, spellbinding way, she recreates intimate personal experiences and gives us her wisdom on a wide variety of subjects. She tells us how a house can both hurt its occupants and heal them. She talks about Africa. She gives us a profile of Oprah. She enlightens us about age and sexuality. She confesses to the problems fame brings and shares with us the indelible lessons she has learned about rage and violence. And she sings the praises of sensuality. Even the Stars Look Lonesome imparts the lessons of a lifetime.

Funny, emotive, real, sincere, beautiful book

I was surprised by the amount of humour I would glean whilst listening to Maya tell her tales. This woman is truly gifted with the art of vernacular. She spins her mouth around countless words and phrases that can only be uniquely out together by one individual. I salute you Maya Angelou. Rest in eternal peace.
