Ignacio Padilla was born in Mexico City and is the author of several award-winning novels and short-story collections. The Washington Post has called Padilla a “brilliant young writer.” Las antípodas y el siglo is the first collection of his short fiction that has also been translated into English. These twelve stories run the gamut from the North to the South poles. A common theme is adventurous men, exploring the depths and heights of the earth—from the Gobi Desert to Mount Everest.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Aventureros a disgusto, soldados amnésicos, geógrafos locos y exiliados de sí mismos. Hombres mínimos, todos ellos, pero capaces de vislumbrar lo inalcanzable. Éstos son los personajes de las doce piezas maestras que componen este libro. Seres insólitos, trayectos indemostrables y descubrimientos que van más allá de lo aparentemente posible se mezclan en estos relatos en los que la pasión por lo desconocido es el motor del viaje de cada hombre a ese punto a partir del cual ya no es posible regresar.”
