David Roman (the guy writing this blog)

Until recently, I worked for Bloomberg in Singapore. I spent 13 years at the Wall Street Journal in Spain and Singapore, and worked in China before that. I often write about the philosophy of Slavoj Zizek, the Slovenian thinker. Doesn’t mean that I agree with everything he says: I do have a more positive attitude towards capitalism than he has.

This is me too: https://www.amazon.com/author/aussiesta. And this is my Patreon page.

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, but I only have aesthetic opinions, never political ones, so they don’t matter much. I wrote this novel that, after many funny perambulations, ended up published in 2015. This year, I published another novel, this one in Spanish, because if you can’t publish books in multiple languages you’re just not trying hard enough:  You can get it por aquí or en Amazon.


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. Any and all feedback and idle comments, please bring it on to aussiesta@hotmail.com.
