It so happened that our morning literary salon took place on the birthday of the great Russian bard, poet, and actor Vladimir Vysotsky. Therefore, it was not surprising that we started our meeting with his works. Детям вечно досаден Их возраст и быт — И дрались мы до ссадин, До смертных обид, Но одежды латали Нам матери в срок, Мы же книги глотали, Пьянея от строк.  («Баллада о борьбе» В. Высоцкий) He was a controversial poet. His works still provoke debates: some love them, others do not understand.

"Hello, shall we work together? Apart from the stories mentioned in your letter, Ivan Petrovich left many manuscripts, some of which are in my possession, while others have been used by his housekeeper for various domestic purposes. Thus, last winter, all the windows of her wing were covered with the first part of the novel that he did not finish. The aforementioned stories were, it seems, his first attempt. They are, as Ivan Petrovich said, mostly true and were heard from different individuals. However, the names in them are almost all fictitious, created by himself, and the names of villages [...]
