Written by one of the most impactful authors of any generation, Letters To My Daughter is testament of the precocious quality of Maya Angelou’s intellect. Whereas she is a mother to one child –a son – Maya Angelou compiled life-long lessons herein for all women. For everyone.
Letters to My Daughter is written in the retrospective penmanship of a life well lived. As she has done so well in her memoirs heretofore, Maya Angelou revists significant events in her life. From her upbringing in Stamps Arkansas, relationships throughout the years, insecurities, illustrious academic career and everything in between. She brings these events into focus and draws lessons from it all.
With the unapologetic clarity so quintessential of her, she carries the reader vicariously through a myriad of subjects. Ranging from racism, divorce, trauma, sexuality, gender-based violence, faith and so much more.
This book is a true gift. An encapsulation of a remarkable life characterized by wins, losses but above all, lessons.
