Luis Muqoz is one of the few survivors of torture under Pinochet's military regime. His autobiography is a story of love, life, death and survival, recounting Chilean history from the 1960s to the present. It charts his magical, but at times harsh childhood, his undercover activity as a left-wing activist, his arrest and torture by the military regime and his eventual exile to England. John McCarthy CBE praised Being Luis saying, "This is a wonderful and important book; tragic, funny, pathetic and brave, all the very best and worst of human nature."
