Gather Together in My Name by Maya Angelou

Gather Together in My Name

Gather Together in My Name  by Maya Angelou

New York: Random House, 1974. Stated first edition. 8vo. Hardcover. Bright orange cloth covers very good- condition with  minor shelfwear and a few spots along bottom edge. Dustjacket very good - spine sunned, some natural lifting to foil in center bottom of front cover, however it is NOT price-clipped and IS in a protective cover.

Gather Together in My Name continues Maya Angelou’s personal story, begun so unforgettably in I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. The time is the end of World War II and there is a sense of optimism everywhere. Maya Angelou, still in her teens, has given birth to a son. But the next few years are difficult ones as she tries to find a place in the world for herself and her child. She goes from job to job–and from man to man. She tries to return home–back to Stamps, Arkansas–but discovers that she is no longer part of that world. Then Maya’s life takes a dramatic turn, and she faces new challenges and temptations. In this second volume of her poignant autobiographical series, Maya Angelou powerfully captures the struggles and triumphs of her passionate life with dignity, wisdom, humor, and humanity. 

PRICE: $25.
