These lively and eclectic narratives, by the author of Shadow Without a Name, move from the scorching heat of the Gobi desert to the glacial heights of Mount Everest: here, among others, are the stories of a Scottish engineer who builds an exact replica of the city of Edinburgh in the dunes; of a dying, cross-dressing pilot who allegedly climbs Mount Everest and then mysteriously disappears; and of a monk who conjures the devil to prove the devil's existence. Based on history, legend, and an awe-inspiring power of invention, Antipodes delights, terrifies, and entrances.
Ignacio Padilla was born in Mexico City and is the author of numerous award-winning novels and short-story collections. Shadow Without a Name was the first of his works to be translated into English.
