The masterfully described story of a small street in a small town, with its apparently unimportant events and inhabitants as ordinary as they come, its petty thieves and drunks, its prostitutes and housewives, people who try to lead an honest life, and others who would never think of it. A degraded reality. Certainly not just that. Inevitably - toute proportion gardée- the similarities to Platonov come to mind.
