In her unique, spellbinding way, she re-creates 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.
"Angelou is always rewarded by what life gives back in her travels, and in sharing with us such perceptions chanced upon in rich solitude, she startles with her frank, fresh ability to relate in precise prose whatever she learns."
"Now 69, Angelou is the nearest thing America has to a sacred institution, a high priestess of culture and love....Angelou's lifelong effort to escape and expose the 'national, racial and historical hallucinations' that have burdened black women in America and replace them with a shining exemplar of power, achievement and generosity of spirit is as miraculous as she says it is, even if one suspects that in 'real life' Angelou must be a little hard to take....Her essays make beautifully easy reading, warm, inspiring and reassuring to a fault. Only a cynic, a smaller mind than Angelou's, could fail to welcome the gifts she offers."
