Monty Cantsin

lives at the edge of suburbs of Slovenska Bistrica in a destructioning cottage with divorced husband of his present wife Estera, a famous nuclear physicist and his second wife, in former times to alcohol addicted altruist, now her husband and society protecting consort and unfated mother of their aborted children, with their antipode, philanthropistic and modestic social-political worker Dr. Heglic, who thinks about himself that he "was an ordinary horse-dung before the October 16th, 1696, and that he remains that until today", and various others prostitutes, pubescent teenagers, prisoners and interrogators yet. Because Monty is Yugoslavian, we cannot to overlook his rich experiences he acquired in correspondence with other Montys from Vietnam, Laos, Kampuchea, Arabien countries, Africa. Asia, America and Australia. He does formly believe in imminent beginning of Third World War and for this purpose he is quite good equipped: he is shod in 1900 heavy spiked mountain shoes, warm dressed in short frock-coat with gloves, warm underwear with rucksack, and blanket etc. On the subject of nutrition Monty's state is following: he is nearly without bread, but the other food is strong enough that he looks quite well and he does not complain that he is hungry (Hungary). He has such trousers as they hear them in Austrian army - with short white spats around shoes. He has good morale, sometimes even excellent. Monty Cantsin recognizes that he is Steyerian from Slovenia, and now he is on Italian side, but soon he will be sent beyond Sava river. He always carries the telephone along with him. Monty Cantsin is uncompromisingly subordinating his life to alpine-climbing; for this reason it is not coincidence he is the only Yugoslavian and one of the rare mortals who has ever lived in this space for fourteen days! Besides the climbing talent he has enough tale ability to write, paint, and play concertina. According to feeling Monty Cantsin is individualist and aristocrat to whom any gregarious instinct is alien. He is afraid of republic, does not want to deal with crowd, loves comfort and luxury, and it seems to him that an ideal political condition would be possible in constitutional monarchy which will assure carefree existence to the intellectual elite. Monty Cantsin often says: "I love people and hate oppressors, but it will be torment to live permanently with people."
Andrej Skrbinek, May 1986
