Jonathan MahlerArkady fits right in among the people of Chernobyl and the other ''black villages'' that make up the Zone of Exclusion. Old farmers, humanitarian aid workers, even the local hustlers -- they're all survivors, stubborn, stoic, cynical and yet vulnerable in equal measure. The battered but tireless Arkady, who has endured a brutal father, the loss of the woman he loved, at least one suicide attempt, a psychiatric hospitalization and much more, can relate.
