Über den Autor:
Danilo Ki? (Serbian Cyrillic: (February 22, 1935?October 15, 1989) was a Yugoslavian/Serbian writer of Hungarian/Jewish?Serbian origin.
Danilo Ki? was born in Subotica, Danube Banovina, Kingdom of Yugoslavia, the son of Eduard Ki? (Kis Ede), a Hungarian Jewish railway inspector, and Milica Ki? (born Dragicevic) from Cetinje, Montenegro. During the Second World War, he lost his father and several other family members, who died in various Nazi camps. His mother took him and his older sister Danica to Hungary for the duration of the war. After the end of the war, the family moved to Cetinje, Montenegro, Yugoslavia, where Ki? graduated from high school in 1954.
Ki? studied literature at the University of Belgrade, and graduated in 1958 as the first student to complete a course in comparative literature. He was a prominent member of the Vidici magazine, where he worked until 1960. In 1962 he published his first two novels, Mansarda and Psalam 44. Ki? received the prestigious NIN Award for his Pe?canik ("Hourglass") in 1973, which he returned a few years later, due to a political dispute.
During the following years, Ki? received a great number of national and international awards for his prose and poetry.
He spent most of his life in Paris and working as a lecturer elsewhere in France.
Ki? was married to Mirjana Miocinovic from 1962 to 1981. After their separation, he lived with Pascale Delpech until his early death from lung cancer in Paris.
A film based on Pe?canik (Fövenyóra) directed by the Hungarian Szabolcs Tolnai is currently in post-production. 
Ki? was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature and was due to win it, were it not for his untimely death in 1989.
