Rubio moves up release of book



anamericanson_0.jpgSen. Marco Rubio's book is coming out earlier than previously expected. He tweeted today the jacket of American Son and said it would come out June 19. Previously, the book had been slated for an October release.

Amazon has An American Son listed for $14.97.

The jacket begins: Few politicians have risen to national prominence as quickly as Marco Rubio. At age forty-one he’s the subject of widespread interest and speculation. But he has never before told the full story of his unlikely journey, with all the twists and turns that made him an American son.

That journey began when his parents first left Cuba in 1956. After Fidel Castro solidified his Communist grip on power, Mario and Oria Rubio could never again return to their homeland. But they embraced their new country and taught their children to appreciate its unique opportunities. Every sacrifice they made over the years, as they worked hard at blue-collar jobs in Miami and Las Vegas, was for their children.
