I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is very disturbing in that there's violence, rape, and racism-- and to credit Angelou- the racism is the most painful somehow. The scene with the dentist is so heartbreaking. But the book is also full of love and humor. A classic.
I don't know if I this is the first time I read this autobiography or not. I had it on my shelf for ages, and I think I read it in high school.
