In the evenings when it's dark a man walks around the village Sosnovka and sings "Ptitsa shastya zavtrashnego dnia, vyberi menia, veberi menia!.." This is Kolya Glukhoy, a local drunkard and an ideal model for a writer: he walks around the village, knocks people's windows, and asks for samogon... Meet Kolya and the rest of the inhabitants of Sosnovka, an ordinary village of Tambov oblast, a homeland of the author Alexey Shepelev. Not the folklore but the real present-day Russian countrymen work and rest there, they have fun and grieve, they sing and dream, and despite all the difficulties they maintain the traditional lifestyle. With the sheer respect and warm humour Shepelev tells about them in the book "The World is a Village and Its Inhabitants". The author assures that "While they sing about the cosmos, while they fly - the village is safe".

"The World is a Village and Its Inhabitants" by Alexey Shepelev has been included in the long nominee list of the Russian National Bestseller prize 2017.
