Drago Jančar

  • When the world was created
  • Literature

Danijel doesn’t know who to please: his father, who constantly celebrates the victory over Nazi Germany with his communist comrades, or his mother, who sends him to religious instruction? State-imposed pioneer oath here, profession of faith with Father Aloisius there. But then young Lena moves into the house and not only upsets Danijel, but the whole district.

A story of growing up in times of upheaval in 1950s Slovenia, amid the contradictions of post-World War II Slovenian society.

Drago Jančar is one of Slovenia’s most important contemporary authors. His novels, essays and plays have been translated into many languages. In 1974 he was imprisoned for “enemy propaganda.” He has received numerous awards, including the Jean Améry Prize and the Austrian State Prize for European Literature.
