Even The Stars Look Lonesome

There is no-one quite like Maya Angelou. Poet to the president, champion of the people, best-selling autobiographer, her experiences as dancer, singer, waitress, activist, director, teacher, wife and mother, have made her one of the few people truly qualified to share her lessons of a lifetime. With her customary courage and humour – and always with style and grace – she reflects on the people and places she has known. She talks about Africa and ageing, she gives us a profile of her great friend and ‘daughter’ Oprah Winfrey, she sings the praises of sensuality.
