A New York Times Bestseller The first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court? Sonia Sotomayor has become an instant American icon. Now? with a candor and intimacy never undertaken by a sitting Justice? she recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench? a journey that offers an inspiring testament to her own extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself.
Amazon Best Books of the Month, January 2013: Happily, it is becoming a familiar story: The young, smart, and very hardworking son or daughter of immigrants rises to the top of American professional life. But already knowing the arc of Sonia Sotomayor’s biography doesn’t adequately prepare you for the sound of her voice in this winning memoir that ends, interestingly, before the Yale Law School grad was sworn in as the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. Hers is a voice that lands squarely between self-deprecating and proud, grateful and defiant; a voice lilted with bits of Puerto Rican poetry; a voice full of anger, sadness, ambition, and love. My Beloved World is one resonant, glorious tale of struggle and triumph. --Sara Nelson
