About the Author:

Tadej Golob (1967, Slovenia) is a unique best-selling author with a thematically broad range of works, who put Slovene crime fiction on the map of world literature. He won the Slovene Novel of the Year Award for his debut, has written several biographies, two YA novels, and a book about the first person to ski from the summit of Mount Everest, also conquered by the author himself.

About the Translator:

Gregor Timothy Čeh was brought up in a bilingual family in Slovenia. He studied Archaeology and History of Art at UCL, taught English in Greece, returned to England to complete a Masters at Kent, and now lives in Cyprus. He translates contemporary Slovene literature for publishing houses and authors in Slovenia, with translations published in both the UK and US.

Praise:

Lenin Park is a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the work of the police, into its hierarchy, where many things can, dictated by political will, get stuck in a drawer. It is also a portrait of “the most beautiful city in the world” and some of its inevitably estranged and quirky residents.

-- Matej Bogataj, Mladina

We finally have a Slovene crime series that the reader holds on to till the very last letter. And when the murderer acts on locations familiar to us from our everyday lives, and the circumstances surrounding the murder are so close to actual reporting from the evening news, it might just be wise to take the occasional glance across your shoulder when walking around town alone at night.

-- Nina Kožar, Knjigobežnice

With The Lake and his hero Taras Birsa, Tadej Golob finally claimed the crime novel for Slovene popular fiction, bringing it (also through the TV series) into every Slovene home. With Lenin Park he gave it unimaginable acceleration, finally making people once again eagerly await new Slovene books.

-- Samo Rugelj, Bukla
