Born in Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco, Mexico, in 1873, Mario Azuela trained as a doctor in Guadalajara and returned to Lagos in 1909 to begin his practice. After the Revolution, in which he participated, he emigrated to El Paso, where he wrote The Underdogs. He is the author of number of other novels in which he continued to explore the theme of the revolution’s impact on Mexican society and to express his passion for social justice, such as The Bosses, The Flies, and The Trials of a Respectable Family.
