ABSTRACT
An introduction to the book, Contextualizing Transition: Interviews with Contemporary Russian Writers & Critics, is presented. It gives an overview of nine interviews of Russian authors and critics. They are very different in their political and ideological approach to literature. They represent a new post-Soviet attitude to life and literary production. The writer of the book examines the responses of authors like Victor Erofeev and Vladimir Sorokin who represent the beginning of postmodern practices that are rooted in an application to literature of ideas. Meanwhile, the interviews with Igor Iarkevich and Egor Radov were intended to open a discussion on the issue of the body politic.
