• None Like Her

Part of the Peter Owen World Series: Slovenia

None Like Her is a literary romantic comedy in the style of David Nicholls, Nick Hornby and Karen Joy Fowler. Dumped and broken-hearted, one man embarks on an odyssey of dates to learn more about himself, his city and women. In this début novel, swirling with ideas and fresh, contemporary voices, Jela Krečič has created a well-observed crypto-misogynist of the new millennium whose behaviour she offers up for our scrutiny.

Translated from the Slovene by Olivia Hellewell

The Peter Owen World Series is a collaborative project with Istros Books bringing you a selection of three books from one language, culture or geographical region twice a year.



Jela Krečič Žižek (b. 1979) 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. None Like Her, her literary début, sold out quickly after its publication and was received extremely well in the media.
