Robert Međurečan (Zagreb, 1969) made a big debut in 2008 with his anti-war novel Prodajem odličja, prvi vlasnik (War Decorations, First Owner, Fair Price). Bold, unapologetic, and praised by literary critics, it was shortlisted for all national literary awards, including the coveted Tportal Prize for the best novel of the year and the Jutarnji list Award for best prose work. Kad jaganjci utihnu u Zdihovu (Silence of the Lambs in Zdihovo, 2011), continues a similar literary path, confronting the deviant events in recent history.
His latest novel Krletka za glinenog goluba (Birdcage, 2019), deals with postwar society, its dark layers, intrigues, and corruptions, using the crime novel genre.
Međurečan is also a screenwriter, musician, and composer.
