Robert Fedorchek is a professor emeritus and past chair of the department of modern languages and literatures at Fairfield University (Fairfield, Connecticut), where he taught for thirty-nine years. He holds a B.A., M.A., and Ph.D., and has published four novels---THE TRANSLATORS, THE CHOICE, THE OLDEST SON, THE BEACH---and MOUSETALES, a collection of children's stories, as well as twenty-three books of translations of Spanish and Portuguese literature. He and his wife,Theresa, live in Fairfield.
I hope to appeal to readers who would be interested in works that take place in New York City, Madrid, Rhode Island, and Connecticut (THE TRANSLATORS); in Chagrin Falls, OH, Fairfield, CT, New York City, and San Francisco (THE CHOICE); Iwo Jima, The Presidio of San Francisco, and Mount Pleasant, PA, (THE OLDEST SON); Cleveland, OH. and its environs (THE BEACH); and, of course, my latest novel, GOD'S CHILD, which takes place in southwestern Connecticut and Fatima, Portugal, and is the story of a young woman and a young man who wish to be active in today's Catholic Church, but the woman must contend with the obstacle of open sexism until a Pope Francis II comes along . . .
