112 Russian writers ranging from great, to absolutely freaking great

Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky don’t need an introduction, but there are many other Russian writers no less great than this super duo. Who is No. 1 in Russian literature and who’s not much of a genius? Find out in our ranking, and feel free to express your point of view in the comment section below.

112. Boris Akunin (b. 1956)
72. Dmitry Bykov (b. 1967)

64. Viktor Pelevin (b. 1962)

Victor Pelevin used to be a guru of the Russian reading public. With his creation of myths and legends for the new Russia, he was the main writer of the 1990s and a whole generation grew up on his books such as “Omon Ra,” “Generation P,” and “Life of Insects.”

Pelevin’s masterpiece, “Chapayev and Pustota,” (called “Buddha’s Little Finger” in English) is also known as Russia’s first Zen-Buddhist novel, and is based on the indivisible nature of authentic and projected reality. Pelevin’s novels are still a quick response to what’s happening in society, showing its sins and addictions (for example, in “Love to Three Zuckerbrins”).



61. Vladimir Sorokin (b. 1955)
51. Nikolai Chernyshevsky (1828-1889)
50. Svetlana Alexievich (b.1948)
49. Zakhar Prilepin (b. 1975)
48. Yevgeny Yevtushenko (1932-2017)
30. Venedikt Erofeyev (1938-1990)
22. Ivan Bunin (1870-1953)
21. Mikhail Bulgakov (1891-1940)
15. Vladimir Nabokov (1899-1977)
4. Nikolai Gogol (1809-1852)
3. Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881)
2. Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910)
1. Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837)
