Aleš Čar (1971) is a writer, screenwriter and editor whose linguistically clever and amusing prose, swaying between realism and verismo, has been translated into half a dozen languages and published in various anthologies. Čar, a darling of both critics of readers, has written three novels and three collections of short stories. He has received numerous awards and nominations for his work, including the Best Debut Award of the Slovenian Book Fair, while his long-awaited last novel On Tolerability (O znosnosti, 2011), which came after an eleven-year gap in novel writing, was shortlisted for the Kresnik Award for best novel of the year.
