ELIZABETH WARREN: HER FIGHT. HER WORK. HER LIFE

 

“This searching biography of an American original—whom I got to know well as my law school colleague adored by her students—is a must read for anyone committed to the revival of decency and equality in our democracy.” —LAURENCE TRIBE, Constitutional law professor, Harvard Law School

 

Want to learn about how Elizabeth Warren became the champion of and for the people? Or about her struggles as a bold populist leader, a woman who has a deeply personal determination to ensure that the millions who’ve lost pensions, homes and jobs are never again shafted by a rigged system? You need Antonia Felix’s book—it is a riveting read.

            —KATRINA VANDEN HEUVEL, Editor & Publisher, The Nation

 

“Antonia Felix captures Elizabeth Warren's honesty, decency, authenticity, poise and passion in this well-written biography. Her book ILLUMINATES THE ARC OF A RISING POLITICAL STAR--from Oklahoma to Harvard to Washington--who uniquely fuses a first-class intellect with a first-class temperament.”

—MARK GREEN, author, Bright Infinite Future; Founder & CEO, ShadowingTrump.org

“Many politicians focus on the ME. Elizabeth Warren has always been about the WE—that sacred American bond of equal justice for ALL that Dr. King fought for. Felix’s biography explains why we need her ‘persistent’ voice more than ever, now and in the future.”

—CONGRESSMAN JOHN LEWIS (GA)

 

"Does a good job of digging evenhandedly into one of the central controversies surrounding Warren, the claim of Native American ancestry. . . . Admirers of Warren will find this a welcome exaltation." KIRKUS REVIEWS

“Felix gives us an intimate portrait
of an insecure girl growing up on ‘the ragged edges of the middle class’ who finds the grit to force her own limits. AN IRRESISTIBLE READ for anyone who cares about Elizabeth Warren’s fight for America’s hammered
working class.”

—CONGRESSMAN ELIOT ENGEL (New York)

“From its well-chosen opening epigram to the end of its four trenchant Appendixes (not to mention every page in between), Antonia Felix’s biography of Elizabeth Warren is worthy of its stellar subject.  If you’re as much of a Warren fan as I am, you’ll be grateful for this THOROUGHLY ENGAGING, GRACEFULLY WRITTEN overview of the Senator’s life and work—thus far.”

co-founding editor of Ms. Magazine, author, and activist
