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.

Ён увасабляе людзей, выхаваных у жорсткасці, расхлістанасці, няпэўнасці, амаральнасці, ханжастве прамінулага стагоддоддзя.
