The Comedy of Life – with Jela Krečič and Slavoj Žižek

Nigel Warburton and Slavoj Žižek join Jela Krečič to discuss her new novel, None Like Her, a hapless tale of the fruitless search for a perfect partner.

The book is published this November by Istros Books in cooperation with Peter Owen Publishers as part of the Peter Owen World Series: Slovenian Season, and advance copies will be available on the night.

Jela Krečič Žižek is a Slovene journalist, columnist and philosopher. She writes for the largest national newspaper ‘Delo’, where she notably published an exclusive interview with Julian Assange in 2013. Her philosophical research focuses on films, TV series and aesthetics, and she has conducted several studies on these topics. She has also co-edited a number of anthologies on contemporary TV series and on the German American film director, Ernst Lubitsch. Her essay was published in the English anthology Lubitsch Can’t Wait (Columbia University Press, 2014). None Like Her, her literary début, sold out quickly after its publication and was very well received in the media.
