Viem, prečo vtáčik v klietke spieva


Kniha radostná i bolestná, tajomná a nezabudnuteľná ako samotné detstvo. Kniha Viem, prečo vtáčik v klietke spieva zachytáva túžby osamelých detí, brutálnosť bigotnosti a zázrak slov, ktoré môžu napraviť svet. „Nikto ťa nebude nútiť rozprávať – asi by to ani nikto nedokázal. No daj na moje slová: jazyk je spôsob, ktorým ľudia komunikujú so svojimi blížnymi, a jedine jazyk nás odlišuje od nižších živočíchov.“ Bola to pre mňa úplne nová myšlienka a potrebovala som čas, aby som si ju poobracala v hlave. „Tvoja stará mama hovorí, že veľa čítaš. Pri každej príležitosti. To je dobre, ale nestačí to. Slová znamenajú viac ako to, čo sa z nich dostáva na papier. Len ľudský hlas im vie vštepiť odtienky hlbšieho významu.“

Mom and Me and Mom


'In the first decade of the twentiety century, it was not a good time to be born black, or woman, in America.' So begins this stunning portrait of Vivian Baxter Johnson: the first black woman officer in the Merchant Marines, purveyor of a gambling business and rooming house, and mother to one of our most cherished literary treasures. Anyone who's read the classic, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, knows Maya Angelou was raised by her paternal grandmother in Stamps, Arkansas. In Mom & Me & Mom, Angelou details what brought her mother to send her away and unearths the well of emotions Angelou experienced long afterward as a result. While Angelou's six autobiographies tell of her out in the world, influencing and learning from statesmen and cultural icons, Mom & Me & Mom shares the intimate, emotional story about her own family.
