Frelih is from Slovenia. His debut novel, In/Half, won the best literary debut award at the Slovenian Book Fair and the EU Prize for Literature. Translation rights have been sold to more than ten territories.

The session is chaired by writer and critic Boyd Tonkin, who writes on arts and books for the Financial Times, the Economist and Spectator, and is special adviser to the Man Booker International Prize (which he chaired in 2016).
