José Luis ‘Coche’ Inciarte

José Luis ‘Coche’ Inciarte was born in Montevideo in 1948. He has a degree in agronomy from the Universidad de la Republic.

Over his working life he dedicated himself to Dairy Production and became a director of the National Association of Milk Producers of Uruguay.

After a long and successful career, he retired from his business activities in order to give talks about his experience as one of the Andes survivors, to take painting classes, and to enjoy his family, especially in his role as a grandfather.

Coche’s book Memories of the Andes was published in the Spanish language by Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial in 2017. We are delighted to publish the English language version, translated by John Guiver.
