Maya Angelou shares the deepest personal story of her life: her relationship with her mother.

Legendary author Maya Angelou shares the deepest personal story of her life: her relationship with her mother in her new book, Mom & Me & Mom.    Angelou's mother, Vivian Baxter, was an indomitable spirit whose petite size belied her larger-than-life presence—a presence absent during much of Angelou’s early life. When her marriage began to crumble, Vivian famously sent three-year-old Maya and her older brother away from their California home to live with their grandmother in Stamps, Arkansas. The subsequent feelings of abandonment stayed with Angelou for years, but their reunion, a decade later, began a story that has never before been told.
