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:

The Lake by Tadej Golob is the first Slovene crime novel I devoured from beginning to end; I am also enthusiastic about it because I believe that the birth of endemic popular fiction significantly reinforces the Slovene literary landscape.

-- Miha Kovač, Delo

The Lake is a phenomenon.

--Noah Charney, AirBeletrina

Golob has built a convincing literary world that is the setting for cleverly set out criminal tribulations, sacrificing certain characteristics of the genre for others, and in doing so, discovering his own expression that will remind us that human monsters are much worse that those hiding in the lake.

--Veronika Šoster, AirBeletrina
