The author presents the main trends in Russian post-modernist literature from the late 1960s to this day. He emphasises the distinctness of the ideas of Russian postmodernism from Western ones, making reference to the works of the most eminent representatives of the movement in Russia, both poets: Timur Kibirov, Dmitri Prigov, Lev Rubinstein and prose-writers: Pavel Krusanov, Viktor Pelevin, Vladimir Sorokin, and Tatiana Tolstoi.
