Biljana Jovanović

Biljana Jovanović (1953–96) was a Serbian intellectual who wrote in almost all major genres; she published poetry, three novels, four plays, and a number of nonfiction pieces, mostly connected to her time in the anti-Milošević opposition of the 1990s. Widely known among intellectuals and activists for her feminist and anti-war work with human rights groups and a “flying” (underground) university, she was also a talented and courageous writer of fiction and drama. Her novels were Pada Avala (1978), Psi i ostali (1980), and Duša, jedinica moja (1984).
