I'm Alex Adams, and I'm a critical writer, musician and novelist living and working in the North East of England. My critical work is about the literary, filmic and popular cultural representation of political torture, surveillance, and global warfare.

My newest critical book, How to Justify Torture: Inside the Ticking Bomb Scenario, was published by Repeater Books in September 2019. The audiobook, published by Blackstone Publishing, is avaliable on Audible, and the Arabic translation is available from Takween Publishing.
