Milovan Danojlić (Serbian Cyrillic: Милован Данојлић; born 3 July 1937) is a Serbian writer.

Biography

He was lecturer on Serbo-Croatian language at the University of Poitiers from 1977–78.[1]

Danojlić was selected artist of the Fulbright program Artist-in-residence at the UMass Amherst from 1980–81.[2][3]

In 1982, he was a founding member of the Committee for the Protection of Artistic Freedom (Odbor za zaštitu umetničke slobode), together with Biljana Jovanović, Dragoslav Mihailović and others. Since 1984, he alternately lived as freelance writer in Paris and Belgrade, and worked as occasional freelance associate at Radio France. In 1989, he was a member of the Founding Committee of the Democratic Party (together with his writer colleagues Borislav Pekić, Gojko Đogo and Dušan Vukajlović), which was the first Yugoslav opposition and non-communist party since 1945.[4][5]

He has published more than 70 books of fiction and poetry in the Serbian language. His most famous books are: Neka vrsta cirkusa (Some kind of circus); Lične stvari - ogledi o sebi i o drugima (Personal things - reflections on yourself and others) and Balada o siromaštvu (Balad on poverty).

He has been a member of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts since 2000, and president of the Serbian Literary Guild since 2013.[6]

Danojlić is married to Sanja Bošković (born in Sarajevo, living in France since 1988), and he is father of two sons (born 1992 and 1993).[7][8][9]
