About this title

Synopsis:

The definitive biography of the first Latina and third woman ever appointed to the Supreme Court-from the national bestselling biographer of Condoleeza Rice and Laura Bush.

National bestselling biographer Antonia Felix delves behind the headlines to tell the compelling story of how the daughter of Puerto Rican immigrants living in the South Bronx became one of the greatest legal minds in the country. With insight and thoughtful analysis, Felix explores the tenacity that makes Sotomayor a sharp, fearless judge; the sense of compassion that drives her to seek justice for the underprivileged; and her strong community ties, which never let her forget where she came from.

Drawing on candid interviews with figures from Sotomayor's personal and professional life-as well as speeches, interviews with Sotomayor, and published papers-Felix paints a revealing portrait of the woman who would come to meet President Obama's rigorous criteria for a Supreme Court justice and whose appointment would make history.

About the Author:

Antonia Felix is the author of more than fifteen nonfiction books, including bestselling political biographies of Condoleezza Rice and Laura Bush. A frequent and much-sought-after speaker on women’s political topics, she has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, FoxNews Channel and many other networks. She has reported on the state of women’s rights in Iran at briefings in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate and also writes a column on energy and sustainability issues for the historic Emporia Gazette. A longtime resident of New York City, Felix now lives with her husband in Kansas.
