SVETLANA ALEXIEVICH was born in Minsk and received the 2015 Nobel Prize for Literature. Her books – which she writes in a style she calls “novels of voices” – have been translated into two dozen languages. They have been the basis for a dozen plays and more than 20 of her scripts have been filmed as documentaries. "What I am interested in," she says, "is what happens to the human being, what happens to it in our time. How does man behave and react. How much of the biological man is in him, how much of the man of his time, how much man of the man."
