Victor Olegovich Pelevin (born 22 November 1962) is a Russian fiction writer. He authored the novels "Omon Ra", "Chapayev and Void" and "Generation P". Pelevin is a laureate of multiple literary awards including the Russian Little Booker Prize (1993) and the Russian National Bestseller (2004).
His books usually carry the outward conventions of the science fiction genre, but are used to construct involved, multi-layered postmodernist texts, fusing together elements of pop culture and esoteric philosophies. Some critics relate his prose to the New Sincerity and New Realism literary movements.
