My beloved world

"An instant American icon--the first Hispanic on the U.S. Supreme Court--tells the story of her life before becoming a judge in an inspiring, surprisingly personal memoir. With startling candor and intimacy, Sonia Sotomayor recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench, a progress that is testament to her extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself. She writes of her precarious childhood and the refuge she took with her passionately spirited paternal grandmother. She describes her resolve as a young girl to become a lawyer, and how she made this dream become reality: valedictorian of her high school class, summa cum laude at Princeton, Yale Law, prosecutor in the Manhattan D.A.'s office, private practice, federal district judge before the age of forty. She writes about her deeply valued mentors, about her failed marriage, about her cherished family of friends. Through her still-astonished eyes, America's infinite possibilities are envisioned anew in this ... book"--

  • "La primera latina y tan solo la tercera mujer designada a la Corte Suprema de los Estados Unidos, Sonia Sotomayor se ha convertido en un icono americano contemporaneo. Ahora, con un candor e intimidad nunca antes asumidos por un juez en activo, Sonia nos narra el viaje de su vida --desde los proyectos del Bronx hasta la corte federal-- en una inspiradora celebracion de su extraordinaria determinacion y del poder de creer en uno mismo. Esta es la historia de una ninez precaria, con un padre alcoholico que moriria cuando ella tenia nueve anos y una madre devota pero sobrecargada, y del refugio que una nina tomo de la confusion del hogar con su apasionada y energica abuela. Pero no fue hasta que le diagnosticaron diabetes juvenil que la precoz Sonia reconocio que, en ultima instancia, dependia de si misma. Pronto aprenderia a darse a si misma las inyecciones de insulina necesarias para sobrevivir y a rapidamente forjar un camino hacia una vida mejor. Con personajes de television como modelo y poca idea sobre lo que en realidad implicaba, Sonia decidio ser abogada, un sueno que la sostendria en su improbable recorrido, desde su brillante paso por la escuela secundaria, la universidad de Princeton y la escuela de Derecho de Yale hasta la fiscalia de distrito del Condado de Nueva York, la practica privada, y el nombramiento a la Corte Federal de Distrito, todo antes de llegar a los cuarenta anos. A lo largo del camino vemos como Sonia fue formada por diversas experiencias (como su fallido matrimonio), mentores invaluables, y la version moderna de familia que creo con amigos queridos y sus hijos. A traves de sus aun asombrados ojos, las posibilidades infinitas de los Estados Unidos son vislumbradas nuevamente en este libro calido y honesto, destinado a convertirse en un clasico de la autoformacion y el autodescubrimiento."

But it was when she was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes that the precocious Sonia recognized she must ultimately depend on herself. ?She would learn to give herself the insulin shots she needed to survive and soon imagined a path to a different life. With only television characters for her professional role models, and little understanding of what was involved, she determined to become a lawyer, a dream that would sustain her on an unlikely course, from valedictorian of her high school class to the highest honors at Princeton, Yale Law School, the New York County District Attorney?s office, private practice, and appointment to the Federal District Court before the age of forty. Along the way we see how she was shaped by her invaluable mentors, a failed marriage, and the modern version of extended family she has created from cherished friends and their children. Through her still-astonished eyes, America?s infinite possibilities are envisioned anew in this warm and honest book, destined to become a classic of self-invention and self-discovery."@en
