So I called Dr. Angelou for perspective, and perhaps to validate my own perspective.
Perhaps more than anything else, Dr. Angelou was a teacher—"a teacher who writes," as she would say.
Closing his interview with Angelou, Plimpton wondered how sherry influenced her rituals after finishing a project.
Dr. Angelou, thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me.
Sherry is a wine of many styles and narratives, and Angelou appreciated challenge.
