Mom & Me & Mom
New York: Random House 2013 - 8vo., light green cloth lettered in gilt; dust jacket, slightly soiled. First edition. A presentation copy, inscribed: “My own darling sister Louise Meriwether, Joy & Love from Maya Angelou, March 22, 2013,” on the half-title page; additionally inscribed on the rear endpaper, “Love to Louise, Joy! From Maya, 3/22/2013.” ---- Acclaimed author and tireless activist, Louise Meriwether earned a permanent place among literati whose writings reassess the African American experience. Her most enduring novels like "Daddy Was a Number Runner" (with a foreword by James Baldwin) drew high praise from her intimate friend of four decades, Maya Angelou. Meriwether contributed dust jacket blurbs for several of Angelou's works and was a dedicatee of her "The Heart of a Woman." Shortly after Angelou's death in May 2014, Meriwether recalled, "I had told her a little while ago, I said, 'Maya, you know one thing. You gonna die with your boots on,' and she said, 'Yeah, because I never take them off.'" A magnificent association copy [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
