Grigorijus Kanovičius (also Grigory Kanovich; born 18 June 1929 in Jonava, Lithuania) is a Lithuanian Jewish/Israeli prose writer, novelist, poet and dramatist. Kanovičius writes in Russian and Lithuanian.[1]

Kanovičius's first writings were published in 1949, and he graduated from Vilnius University in 1953. Kanovičius's published work includes collections of poetry in Russian: Dobroye utro ("Good Morning", 1955) and Vesenniy grom ("Spring Thunder" 1960); literary epigrams and parodies in Lithuanian ("With a Joyful Eye", 1964; "Naked Ones on Olympus", 1981); thirty plays and film scenarios (some co-authored) on contemporary themes; and translations of literary prose from Lithuanian into Russian.

Kanovičius's Russian prose works are almost all devoted to the life of Lithuanian Jewry.[2]
