There is violence in Maya Angelou's new book. There is also sorrow and bitterness and pain. But mainly there is love. There are passages here that will be familiar to those who have read the author's earlier autobiographies. Angelou — octogenarian poet, playwright, academic and activist — has been writing about her life for more than 40 years and is still best known for I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings , about her upbringing in racially segregated Arkansas and Missouri. In it she recalled how, at the age of eight, she was raped by her mother's boyfriend. He was later kicked to death, after which Angelou didn't speak for five years.

The book explains Baxter's behavior, especially Baxter's abandonment of Angelou and Angelou's older brother when they were young children, and fills in "what are possibly the final blanks in Angelou's eventful life". After Baxter helps her through the birth of her son, Angelou goes from calling Baxter "Lady" to "Mom". At the same time she made a deliberate attempt to challenge the usual structure of the autobiography by critiquing, changing, and expanding the genre. She had become recognized and highly respected as a spokesperson for Blacks and women. Angelou was, as scholar Joanne Braxton has stated, "without a doubt,
