I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings Chapter 33 Summary
When Maya returns home to San Francisco, she sees that she was not the only one who grew up.
Bailey Jr. has also had his share of experiences. Basically, he has become a gangster. He tries to imitate the conmen around his mother and ends up a sad sixteen-year-old in a cheap zoot suit with a white prostitute. This is not a good look for him.
Vivian, not surprisingly, isn't happy about the whole situation, and she argues with Bailey Jr. constantly.
Finally, in a majorly tense scene, he is kicked out of the house. He says that—at sixteen—he is a man, and it's time for him to live on his own. Right.
