All of us can be ennobled by using deeper perception on “The wise Latina.” Justice Sotomayor has been in the news lately, administering the oath of office to Vice-President Joe Biden. Her new memoir is out as well.
Although I haven’t yet read “My Beloved World,” I have seen her interviewed on TV, read about Sonia Sotomayor in the newspaper. Like you, perhaps, I learned that she began giving herself insulin injections for diabetes. By herself, age seven. By herself because of a flaky mother and a father whose hands shook too badly, from alcoholism, to help his daughter.
