If ever an audiobook could be called mouth-watering, this journey through the years, read by the great American poet, is a feast of food that only Maya Angelou can bring to her listeners. In a deep, rich voice, she shares stories of people, places, and food in a cozy, confidential way, taking us from her Arkansas childhood and her grand-mother's kitchen to adulthood, including becoming a Creole cook without knowing how. Along the way, she generously shares her no-nonsense approach to life. As a friend once said, "If you can write as well as you cook, you're going to be famous." And the prediction came true. The telling is funny at times, heartbreaking at others, and Angelou's superb voice turns the art and enjoyment of cooking into poetry. M.T.B.
