Chris Ware's 6 favorite books

Chris Ware's new book is Monograph.

One of his six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou

There's a reason Angelou's memoir of childhood rape is assigned in schools where books about reality aren't banned: The extraordinary will, life, and voice she forged in the wake of her trauma provide an example against which we all should dare to measure ourselves.
Read about the other entries on the list.

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is among Dea Brøvig’s top ten books about mothers and Sona Charaipotra's six critical reads for Black History Month.
