Borisav "Bora" Stankovic (Serbian Cyrillic: ??????? "????" ?????????; 31 March 1876 – 22 October 1927) was a Serbian writer belonging to the school of realism.
His novels and short stories depict the life of people from South Serbia.
He belongs to an exceptional group of storytellers that suddenly appeared at the turn of the 20th century, Ivo Cipiko, Petar Kocic, Milutin Uskokovic, and others.
These Serbian prose writers showed many traits in common with the Russians, particularly with Dostoyevsky (Borisav Stankovic), and to a certain extent also with Maxim Gorky (Ivo Cipiko and Petar Kocic).
