Peter Balko



Peter Balko, born 1988 in Lučenec/Lošonc, is a Slovakian writer. He is well-known as a screenplay writer and has won many awards for his debut novel. Published in German: Zusammen sind wir unbesiegbar, 2020.

Myths and cheeky children’s pranks, sadistic Nazis and his grandparent’s love story – it’s impressive how Peter Balko interweaves the most diverse set pieces as building blocks for his Slovakian Macondo.
