I tweet @dromanber, and — besides Zizek — in this blog I write mostly about propaganda: the way it’s used in literature, movies and the arts; the way it works. All opinions are, of course, mine. I have published three books, all novels; most recently one loosely based on the memoirs of my maternal grandfather, an officer in Spain’s Civil War losing side, who was very glad to lose that war. If you wonder why, here’s the book:

You can read long extracts from Geli Hitler here, and see by yourself. Mostly, it’s about the suspicious death of Adolf Hitler’s weird niece, Geli, and the inspector who investigates the case in Weimar Germany. I hope you like it; I’m definitely open to writing a sequel, as some readers have suggested. For Los Bailarines extracts, try here.
