The village of Myshkino is located in some Russian backwater (or, as Kirill called it, "the Real Russia"), where "in the summer they collect in their harvest and build their stacks of firewood, in the winter they toast their feet and talk of the summer." Here Bayliss settles down with Kirill's daughter and her husband after his release from the camps.
That is what unites his experience in the camps with his experience in Myshkino.
