Vladimir Mirosavljevic was born in Belgrade, Serbia in 1973.
He began his writing career in 2001, writing his first novel titled Sooner or Later, which was published in 2002 in Belgrade. The novel is set on a large yacht cruising in the sea of Italy. On board are some of the most powerful people in the world who are considering changing the statutes to the Helsinki Conference on the territorial integrity of international borders. The participants at the meeting become divided on the issue: the hard line wants to destroy the foundations of world peace while their opponents are weary to to stoke the secessionist ambitions of small separatist movements that are active across the globe. The conflict takes on larger proportions as espionage, murder and conspiracy become the weapons in the battle for a new world order, where large powers may do as they please and territorial integrity becomes an ideal of the past. The novel follows these events to their ultimate finale.
In 2003 he wrote the novel Agony, which was followed in 2004 by the novel Is There Salvation? The
latter concerns the battle of pro-globalism and anti-globalism forces in the world, which are in fact
both controlled from the same power centre. These two forces have their activists and clandestine operational teams who wage war by other means. They receive assignments that seem logical, necessary and unattainable only on first regard. On the road to fulfilling their goals, they enter into conflict, and yet without knowing it, these enemies serve each other’s causes. The novel sees the disappearance of the Eiffel Tower, an alternative is found to democracy, American aircraft carriers are sunk, as is the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
In 2005 he wrote the story Essence and Form, Lost and Found in Belgrade, which won the competition Best Story About Belgrade that was organized under the auspices of the City Assembly and the Tourist Organisation of Belgrade.
In 2006 he wrote the play Interstices. Two women, 32-year-old Dobrila, a Serbian woman, and Vesna,
42, who is from Serbia but lives in Sweden, both appear on stage behind computers. A voice addresses
them seemingly from nowhere. They both conclude that the voice is that of a police officer, but it is In
fact the voice of God who has divided the life of one woman into two people; the first is from the early
period of a life and the second is from the latter part of the same life. Their lives are divided such that
their self-delusion is emphasized, and at the end of the play the two women conclude that they are one
and the same person, who has actually died, and that God has directed their attention to where the two
women came up short during the course of their lives, and also where humanity itself has missed the mark.
In 2008, Mr. Mirosavljevic won the award Progressive of the Year organized by the company Johnny Walker.
