Book Translated by SCF Administrator Reviewed in MultiCultural Review
(Bradenton, Fla., September 1, 2009) - A bilingual book of short stories translated from Spanish into English by Bradley Davis, associate vice president of program evaluation and compliance at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF), was reviewed in the summer edition of MultiCultural Review.
"A Matter of Men," written by Benito Pastoriza Iyodo, contains nine short stories addressing man's identity and the role of gender in human interactions as determined by societal norms, media influence and stereotypes. MultiCultural Review dubbed the introduction written by Davis as a "good segue" into the stories of the characters and their life experiences.
"All will come away from this finely translated collection seeing humanity in an entirely new light," the review stated.
Davis has a bachelor's degree in sociology from Davidson College where he also participated in the study abroad program, traveling to Madrid, Spain. He also earned a juris doctor from University of Miami Law School and practiced law as a bilingual attorney. Spanish has continued to be a vital part of his professional and creative endeavors: as a curriculum and bilingual materials developer, translator, interpreter and educational administrator. His translations have been published in literary publications and magazines, including Arte en Luz y Literatura, Mystralight, Visible, Literal and the U.S. anthology, Poetic Voices Without Borders.
