Sonia Sotomayor is "honored to be working with the distinguished publishing house of Alfred A. Knopf on the publication of my memoir,” according to Knopf, which has announced the signing of a contract for the as-yet-untitled memoir.
There is also no publication date, but for those who are anxious to read about Sotomayor, a new biography Sonia Sotomayor: The True American Dream has just hit the bookstores. The biographer is Antonia Felix, who has also penned the biographies Condi:The Condoleezza Rice Story; Laura: America's First Lady, First Mother, as well as biographies of Andrea Bocelli, Harry Connick Jr.; and Wesley K. Clark.
Felix's approach is generally not a critical one. The Sotomayor biography is likewise flattering. Steve Weinberg, reviewing the book in the Kansas City Star begins by saying:
Based on the research of Kansas biographer Antonia Felix, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor should perhaps be canonized.
