Mariano Azuela

Mexican author and physician Mariano Azuela Gonz´┐Żlez (1873-1952) is best known for his tales of the Mexican Revolution. His 20 novels on the subject include The Underdogs, which he wrote during his service as a medic with Pancho Villa's army. The story first appeared in a Texas newspaper, where it attracted little attention; rediscovered a decade later, it exercised an enormous influence on Mexican writers of social protest and was translated into several languages.
