Mitja Čander

For decades, Mitja Čander (1974) has been one of the most influential figures in Slovenia’s literary and publishing world – even though his literary debut, Blind Man (Slepec), appeared only in 2019. An editor and literary critic, the co-founder and director of Beletrina Academic Press, essayist, screenwriter, dramaturge, columnist, and candidate for national chess master, Čander has accomplished many things in his career and taken a leading role in a number of major projects, such as Maribor – The European Capital of Culture (2012). Since 1992, he has published many articles and essays on Slovenian and world literature and received numerous awards for his work. A wide-ranging intellectual, he is a regular participant in discussions that reach far beyond the cultural sphere, so it was only a matter of time (and genre) before he tried his hand at writing fiction.
