Jela Krečič Žižek (1979) is a Slovenian journalist, columnist and philosopher. She writes for the largest national daily Delo, where she had notably published an exclusive interview with Julian Assange in 2013. Her philosophical research focuses on films, TV series and aesthetics, and she has conducted several studies on these topics. She has also co-edited a number of anthologies on contemporary TV series and on German American film director Ernst Lubitsch. One of her essays was published in the English anthology Lubitsch Can't Wait (Columbia University Press, 2014). None Like Her (Ni druge), her literary debut published in 2015, sold out quickly and was very well received in the media. Her second novel, The Book of Others (Knjiga drugih), was published in 2018.
