Ніякай літасьці Валянціне Г. by Альгерд Бахарэвіч
Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 83,640. Language: Belarusian. Published: September 25, 2015 by kniharnia.by. Categories: Fiction » Literature » Urban
Тэксты аўтара заўсёды вылучаліся радыкалізмам і сэнсавай глыбінёй. Хоць за апошнія некалькі гадоў значна зьмяніўся стылёвы падыход да словатворчасьці. Я адзначыў бы кардынальны сыход аўтара ад экспэрымэнту з формай. Мажліва, і зьмена сьветапогляду аўтара паўплывала на зьнікненьне панкаўскага пачатку ў ягоных творах.
