Being Luis: A Chilean Life

Being Luis: A Chilean Life

by Luis Munoz (Author)


A voice for those who were silenced. This is a powerful account of a life that reflects recent Chilean history from the 1960s to the present through the author?s extraordinary personal experiences. It recounts his magical, sometimes harsh, childhood, his development as a left-wing activist, his arrest and torture by the military regime and eventual exile to England. It is a story of love and survival in a time when the young were prepared to sacrifice everything, including their lives, for a better future. When ordinary people did great things and dared to dream great dreams. Uplifting, at times devastating, this story will move everyone who reads it. It speaks for a lost generation who paid the ultimate price for their ideals.
