Birth: Feb. 4, 1930
Death: Jul. 2, 1992

Writer. He spent six years in jail as a political prisoner, and his only reading material was the Bible. In 1965, ten years after his pardon, his first novel, "The Time of Miracles" was published and became an overnight sensation. A set of parables based on the miracles of the New Testament, the book rewrites the story of Jesus from the perspective of Judas (who is obsessed with the idea prophecy must be fulfilled) and from that of the individuals upon whom miracles were performed-without their consent and, in most cases, to their eventual dissatisfaction. Filled with humor and poignancy, "The Time of Miracles" is a trenchant commentary on the power of ideology in one's life, upon what it means to hold beliefs, and upon the nature of faith. Borislav Pekic spent the best of his years in exile in London waiting for the end of communism. In 1985 he was elected to The Serbian Academy of Science and Arts and was made a member of the Advisory Committee to The Royal Crown. Posthumously, in 1992, HRH Crown Prince Aleksandar Karadjordjevic awarded him the Royal Order of the Two-headed White Eagle, being the highest honour bestowed by a Serbian monarch. He died in London of lung cancer.
