Jorge Baradit Biography

Jorge Baradit is one of the most popular and richest Writer who was born on June 11, 1969 in Valparaíso, Valparaíso Region, Chile.

Jorge Marcos Baradit Morales (born 11 June 1969) is a Chilean writer, the author of the bestselling trilogy Historia secreta de Chile.

Jorge Baradit spent his childhood and early adolescence in Valparaíso, where he formed a punk rock band called Trato Bestial, which performed in underground concerts in Valparaíso Region from 1986 to 1991. Coming from a lower-middle-class family, he was educated in public schools and at the Rubén Castro school in Viña del Mar. He studied one year (1987–1988) of Architecture at the Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaíso and later Graphic Design (1988–1994) at Viña del Mar University, where he graduated. He has been dedicated to literature since 2005.

From 2006 to 2008, he maintained the Ucronía Chile blog, a project that invited writers, illustrators, photographers, and videographers to twist Chilean history at any point and under any criteria. From that experience came the book CHIL3: Relación del Reyno (Ediciones B, 2010), for which he invited Francisco Ortega, Álvaro Bisama, and Mike Wilson to act as co-editors. The volume anthologizes the best entries of the blog, added to new contributions by writers such as Carlos Labbé, Edmundo Paz Soldán, Claudia Apablaza [es] , and Rodrigo Fresán.

During the Santiago International Book Fair (FILSA), in November 2011, he launched his first graphic novel, Policía del karma, drawn by Martín Cáceres, where he recounts the actions carried out by a dystopian police force in an alternative Santiago that pursues people for crimes committed in their previous lives. The work won the FIC Award for best cover, best writer, best cartoonist, and best comic of the year 2011.

In May 2012 he created, again with illustrations by Cáceres, Lluscuma, a fantasy graphic novel with elements of alternative worlds, time travel, hallucinations, psychological violence, alternate history, and delirium, set in 1977, during the event known as the case of Corporal Valdés (a supposed abduction by extraterrestrials), and 2013 in the context of issues related to death and torture during the military dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet. The work was published weekly in the print edition of the newspaper La Segunda from May to November 2012. The following year it was released in a book with the text “revised, corrected, expanded, and edited with the calm and care that only months of work in the laboratory can give.”

He debuted in literature with Ygdrasil [es] (published in Spain in 2007), “a story set in a futuristic Mexico, where a Chilean mercenary named Mariana accepts the most dangerous missions that will take her through a digital form of hell. It shows a world full of organic technology taken to the limit, an imbunche, dead soldiers who reincarnate as communication systems, and a shaman who orbits the Earth.”

Miquel Barceló, editor of the NOVA collection of Ediciones B, in which both works appeared, described Ygdrasil as a “revolution in science fiction in Spanish”, and characterized Baradit’s writing as cyber-shamanism, a definition that is not to the Chilean’s liking – “I prefer Magical Realism 2.0. Macondo already has fiber optic networks, but his shamans still take ayahuasca,” he said at the time.

However, the success of Historia secreta de Chile was not free from controversy – some historians criticized the quality of its documentation, while others such as the 2016 National History Award winner Julio Pinto [es] and the 2006 winner Gabriel Salazar supported the publication. In the following two years Baradit released the remaining volumes of the trilogy, with covers as provocative as the first (which had portrayed Arturo Prat as a spiritualist figure, endowed with a third eye). The second showed Bernardo O’Higgins with dark glasses, emulating the famous photograph of Augusto Pinochet after the military coup, alluding to the fact that the independence leader was the country’s first dictator. The third figure featured Gabriela Mistral with a tattoo reading “Doris”, plus a piercing in her nose.
