Book Review: Mom and Me and Mom by Maya Angelou

Mom & Me & MomMom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A series of anecdotes and stories that explored Maya Angelou’s relationship with her mother, Vivian, (some of which were also included in other books) Mom & Me & Mom is a quick, pleasant read.

At times, It seemed to skim over some deeper emotions, with issues of anger and abandonment hinted at rather than fully explored, so I wouldn’t rank it among Maya Angelou’s most powerful works. (My personal favorites are Letter to My Daughter and Even the Stars Look Lonesome) But even still, a book by Maya Angelou is always a treat and this book is no exception.

About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
