Abstract:A final chapter analyzes Petrushevskaia's post-Soviet fairy tales, in particular her Wild Animal Fairy Tales and Adventures of Barbie collections. Read within the context of the fall of communism and the rising influence of Western consumer culture, these tales reveal a process in which traditional identity categories, on both individual and national scales, are subverted by a widespread reordering of Russia's linguistic and cultural sign systems.
