It is the first story in the collection Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka. Later, in the 19th-century the story was adapted as an opera of the same name by Modest Mussorgsky (left unfinished by the composer, and completed by other hands). Sorochinsky fair is a large fair held in the village of Velyki Sorochyntsi near Poltava in the Myrhorod district of Ukraine. It was held five times a year during the Russian Empire, then went into a 40-year moratorium during Soviet rule. It has been held annually since its revival after Ukraine became independent in 1991.

The book was published by Ukrainian Displaced Persons (DPs) with the approval of UNRRA Team 108 in a German camp in the aftermath of WWII.
