Summary/Abstract: Oles Ulianenko – modern Ukainian prosaist – urbanist, nonconformist – writer, author of over twenty existential – philosophical novels. In his works uses the achievements of Russian tshernucha (Russian word – ÷óðíóõà, European name – noir), and at the same time continues the best traditions of Ukrainian classic novelistic (Wasyl Stefanyk, Todos Osmaczka, Archyp Teslenko, Walerian Pidmohylny and others) transgressive, constantly breaking literary taboo, exceeding in its – far from sweet – „modern urban apocalypse” impassable limits of ethics, or even good taste for one purpose: to show „necrophil” condition of Ukrainian community of 80’s and 90’s. The twentieth century and to warn against the progressive degradation.
