Read this excerpt from Svetlana Alexievich's book "Secondhand Time."

I had problem with my laptop. So, in stead of working on my new novel - this is my first thing to do in the morning these days --I read this excerpt by Svetlana Alexievich. Oh, how intriguing! Hers is a special genre, and I can't say I like it always. As for example, I could not finish her Voices From Chernobyl. It's way too grim and morbid, though necessarily, for my taste. But this one I liked very much.  She can write something compelling on modern, capitalistic way of life also. Read it and take note of her brilliance and objectivity.
