Eliane Glaser is a writer, a senior lecturer in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University, an associate research fellow at Birkbeck, University of London, and a former BBC radio producer.
Her most recent book Get Real: How to See Through the Hype, Spin and Lies of Modern Life is published by Fourth Estate. She also writes for the Guardian, the London Review of Books, and the New Statesman, among other publications, and presents programmes about culture and politics on BBC Radio 4.
She is interested in how political and corporate elites co-opt our desires for progress and authenticity, selling them back to us as empty brands – from fake people-power to cyber-utopianism, from oil-company greenwash to mass-market organics.
