A journalist receives a proposal to investigate the eventful life of his great-grandmother, about whom all that is known is that she fled Spain, abandoning her husband and child, shortly before the Civil War broke out. The memoir of an entire century, this novel adds a new, original chapter to Julia Navarro's best-selling career. Tell Me Who I Am surprises and enchants with a captivating and heartrending story. This is a novel about memory and identity with an exceptionally well-drawn and unforgettable literary character: a woman who throughout her extraordinary life was able to achieve the highly difficult feat of knowing herself. A victim of her mistakes, aware of her guilt, frightened by her traumas, she is above all an anti-heroine, a flesh-and-blood woman who always acts according to her principles, facing up to every challenge and making errors for which she will never fully pay. A woman who decided that she couldn't be neutral in this life. Navarro's most personal novel surprises for its melodrama and the raw emotions transmitted by many of its stories. It is filled with pure adventure, introspection and political chronicle. From the tumultuous years of the Second Spanish Republic to the fall of the Berlin Wall, including World War II and the Cold War, these pages are packed with intrigue, emotion, politics, espionage, love, betrayal and settings like Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, Buenos Aires, Mexico, Moscow, London, Berlin and Warsaw with brief stopovers in The Basque Country, Cairo, Athens, Lisbon and New York.

In this searingly honest memoir, Jane Haynes recalls to her psychotherapist her extraordinary story. Having overcome her strange childhood, overshadowed by her mother's absence and father's descent into madness, the real diagnosis of which the family concealed, she attempts, vividly but without sentimentality, to understand the construction of her own life. Now a psychotherapist in her own right, Haynes opens up her case files, which include a gifted young man on the cusp of a nervous breakdown; the middle-aged woman tormented by suicidal thoughts; the pornography addict, unable to connect emotionally with his girlfriend. Tragedy is brought home to her when her son-in-law is murdered. Her account powerfully demonstrates the resilience and life force of human nature.

She is a woman with God-given powers, and the forces of evil are out to get her. Who are they, these powerful and sinister bodies which seem to be all-powerful and are prepared to kidnap, brainwash and rape to gain control of her? They are shadowy organizations that indulge in nameless and terrible practises. But what are the strange powers she has, and where do they come from? If they come from God, then which God? The God of Christianity or the God of Islam, or another God altogether? This thought-provoking book is a combination of high drama and a profound meditation on the nature of religious truth.

Un periodista recibe la propuesta de investigar la vida de su bisabuela, Amelia Garayoa, una mujer de la que sólo se sabe que huyó abandonando a su marido y a su hijo poco antes de que estallara la guerra civil española. Para rescatarla del olvido deberá reconstruir su historia desde los cimientos, encajando, una a una, todas las piezas del inmenso y extraordinario puzle de su vida. Marcada por cuatro hombres que la cambiarán para siempre --el empresario Santiago Carranza, el revolucionario francés Pierre Comte, el periodista estadounidense Albert James y el médico militar vinculado al nazismo Max von Schumann--, la historia de Amelia es la de una antiheroína presa de sus propias contradicciones que cometerá errores que no terminará nunca de pagar y que acabará sufriendo, en carne propia, el azote despiadado tanto del nazismo como de la dictadura soviética. Burguesa y revolucionaria, esposa y amante, espía y asesina, protagonizará junto a una extensa galería de personajes inolvidables la aventura de vivir intensamente todo un siglo, desde la España republicana hasta la caída del Muro de Berlín, pasando por la Segunda Guerra Mundial y los oscuros años de la Guerra Fría.

We see; we hear; we make use of many common things throughout our lives but do we ever really see those things? Do we ever really acknowledge or pay attention to our surroundings? This book is intended to accentuate those things that we see and use on an everyday basis; basic things that, if they could speak, would be attempting to explain to us who and what they are. How easily would we be able to recognize them while reading that particular objects descriptive review? These are not abstract objects; they are part of our everyday lives, and your challenge, while reading what these things have to say, is to ascertain who or what is communicating with you, if posible, before reaching the final descriptive paragraph. So, turn the pages and tell me Who Am I ?
