Boris Kolar

Dr Boris Kolar is an ecologist and ecotoxicologist and an international expert on environmental risks. He has written columns for a daily newspaper and published the occasional text in Slovenian literary magazines, but he is most well-known for his humorous novel Iqball Hotel set in Africa, which tells the story of a tourist who slowly turns into the proprietor of a hotel in the middle of nowhere. The novel was shortlisted for the Kresnik Award for best novel in 2009. More than a decade later, in 2020, Goga published his book of short stories Trinajst (Thirteen). In 2021, he published his second novel Potopimo Islandijo! (Let’s Sink Iceland!). His writings are in touch with nature, bright and, above all, extremely humorous.
