This chapter offers a general overview of post-Soviet literature focusing on its predominant languages and styles, ranging from the literature of Vergangenheitsbewältigung to the literature of glamour. Assessing the plethora of styles and aesthetics in contemporary Russian prose fiction, it is argued that the end of the Soviet era has led to a general linguistic reorientation of post-Soviet writers, and the implications of this reorientation are discussed briefly.

Keywords:   post-Soviet Russian prose, language of literature, postmodernist Russian literature, sociolinguistic change
