Dušan Andjelković (Belgrade, 28 July 1910 - Belgrade, 6 May 1997) was a Serbian writer.


Andjelković was born in Belgrade, on 28 July 1910, to father Dimitrije and mother Kosara. He grew up in Savamala (in "Three Keys", the area above the former Bare of Venice). He finished high school, a vocational school of the Ministry of Finance and the Faculty of Economics in Belgrade. He worked for the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and after the liberation of Belgrade in 1944 he joined the trade union, the publishing company Rad [1]and the Federal Executive Council. Miloš Crnjanski taught him history at the Fourth Belgrade Gymnasium in Belgrade, and Momčilo Nastasijević taught him Serbian language and literature, which, according to Andjelković, influenced him to publish his first poem at the age of sixteen and later dedicate himself to writing altogether.

Before the Second World War, he published poems in many newspapers and magazines, among others in the "Chronicle" of the prestigious Matica Srpska and in the Serbian Literary Gazette. Only a small part of these poems is included in the first published collection.

In his novels, he covered the turbulent times from 1900 to the end of the century and describes mainly Belgrade, especially the part where he grew up - the area around "Three Keys" in Savamala (now Sarajevska Street), Bara Venezia and the so-called Ludnička bašta, which he considered in his novels, a symbol of life.

He was married to Maria (1910-2005), with whom she bore two sons, Milivoj (1940) and Vladimir (1946).
