Maya Angelou was an undeniable force. She was a poet, memoirist, and activist whose work found admiration across the globe. She followed the tradition of the Harlem Renaissance authors, many of whom she met at various points throughout her life. She worked alongside the most notable Civil Rights activists, including Martin Luther King Jr. She was close friends with James Baldwin and Oprah Winfrey. She even mentored Tupac Shakur briefly after meeting him on the set of the film Poetic Justice. A pillar of the Black community, Angelou spoke deliberately and proudly of her culture and era. In Even the Stars Look Lonesome, she maintains her usual commanding voice in personal essays. They range in subject matter, describing her relationships and philosophies and experiences. They are full of wisdom. The collection was a major bestseller. It remains an important volume among Angelou’s many titles.

This first edition, first printing is signed by Angelou on the title page. Includes an original 5×7 photograph of Angelou, presumably taken when she signed this copy. It is in fine condition. In the original quarter cloth, fine. Text block fine. Red remainder mark to top edge. In the original dust jacket, fine. 

A fine signed first edition by Maya Angelou.
