Greetings, my name is Viktar Martinovič, and I am a man who, by the age of 44, has lived three lives.
Three lives at a time when most people have barely been able to handle one life.
And – to make myself clearer – by three lives I mean the whole range of sensations that have been open to me in all my years of life so far.
Three different lots of dreams.
Three different sets of values.
Three different selves.
Three different trajectories of delusions.
My deaths and rebirths I owe entirely to an event which took place exactly thirty years ago. The collapse of the USSR. The rise of a new country, the Republic of Belarus, and my successful emergence as a recognised writer in that country.
