My name is Vladimir Kernerman. The story of my life: born in Kiev. Study — Russia and USA. PhD, information science. The life story of my soul began 7 years ago. Then I, an earth-bound materialist, turned to Heaven with a prayer, born of the spirit of books by L. E. Ulitskaya. Through the essence of wisdom and humanity of the novel — The Big Green Tent — I came to realization that the suffering of life can and should lead to universal human compassion and mercy.
