Since the middle of the 20th century, the two classical types of “little man” and “superfluous man” have been discussed as a merged character common for contemporary Russian fiction. The paper outlines the roots of this character in Lermontov and Chekhov and focuses on its varieties in third-wave and in fourth-wave Russian émigré authors.

Keywords: “little man”, “superfluous man”, Russian American fiction, Aksyonov, Dovlatov, Bezmozgis, Shteyngart.
