Manuel Roig-Franzia - The Rise of Marco Rubio

Manuel Roig-Franzia presents The Rise of Marco Rubio ($25.00). Florida’s junior senator has risen through the ranks of American politics with astonishing speed, so much so that this 40-year-old son of immigrants is known as the "Michael Jordan" of the Republican party. Having gained a level of national notoriety never before achieved by a Cuban-American, Rubio - considered by some to be the crown prince of the Tea Party - is poised to continue making history this fall. In this just released book, a Washington Post reporter chronicles Rubio's historic climb, tracing a family saga that began beneath a thatched roof in rural Cuba.

Manuel Roig-Franzia is a writer in The Washington Post's Style section. He writes long-form pieces on a broad range of subjects, exploring politics, power and the culture of Washington, as well as profiling major political figures and authors.
