Milan Kleč

Milan Kleč, born in 1954, is one of the most important contemporary writers in Slovenia. He features downright originality, far from any fashions and trends. A special characteristic is his “oral” style, combined with his own peculiar fantasy.

So far, he has published eight books of poetry, over thirty books of novels and short fiction, a children’s book, six plays, six radio plays for children and two for adults, and written a script for TV. He was granted some awards for his poetry and, in February 2006, he received the Prešeren Foundation Prize for his book of short prose Srčno dober človek in zvest prijatelj (A kind-hearted man and loyal friend). His works were mostly translated into Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian, three of his short stories also into German.
