Pablo Huneeus is one of Chile's leading writers and social critics. His more than twenty books are known for their lively personal style, sense of humor, and vivid portraits or real people. Several have been bestsellers.

Trained as a sociologist, he received his doctorate from the University of Paris (Sorbonne). Huneeus has worked as a consultant for United Nations in Geneva (Switzerland), as a researcher for ECLA (Economic Commission for Latin America) in Santiago, and as professor of industrial sociology of the engineering faculty of the University of Chile. He was the founding director of Chile's National Employment Service (SENCE) and due to his concern for freedom of expression, is currently organizing the MUAC Movimiento Universal Anti Censura (Universal Anti Censorship Movement).

Pablo Huneeus is a frequent contributor as a columnist to several of Chile's newspapers and has been foreign correspondent for The Economist in London and for The Wall Street Journal. He is often guest on Chilean television talk shows and once hosted his own show for a season.

In addition to writing, Pablo's interests include his three children and a wooden boat he sails in the Chiloe fjords, on the way to Cape Horn.

His wife, Veronica Crovari, is a librarian and works as file management consultant for big companies bogged down in papers.
