This wise book is the wonderful continuation of the bestselling Wouldn't Take Nothing for My Journey Now.
Even the Stars Look Lonesome is Maya Angelou talking of the things she cares about most. 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.

The audio version of Even the Stars Look Lonesome, a collection of unabridged essays read by Maya Angelou, plays as if you are spending an evening with the author herself. You'll feel as if, by some stroke of luck, Angelou had settled down for a pleasant chat over dinner and a glass of wine, telling stories about her family and sharing her powerfully stated opinions about the African American experience, sex versus sensuality, and the ins and outs of growing old. Her reading is lively and intelligent, her words at once lyrical and powerful, blurring the line between memoir and poetry. Don't be surprised if you find yourself repeatedly hitting rewind, just to savor again Angelou's wonderful word play and mighty matriarch's voice. (Running Time: 90 minutes)From the Publisher:
