In this article entitled Oksana Robski’s (Not Only) Literary Projects we would liketo briefly present the figure of Oksana Robski, an author of romance novels whois not very well known in Poland, but is very popular in Russia. The collapse ofthe Soviet Union resulted in commercialization of Russian literature, which,among other things, made some writers use various publicity stunts. Among suchstunts, conceiving the so-called “literary projects” comes to the fore. Robski, whoturned her name into a brand, is a prime example here. The writer is associatedwith both sale of colour magazines, luxury furniture or perfumes, as well as withwriting popular romance novels. In order to create the appropriate media image,Robski distorts her own biography and freely talks in the media about her relationshipswith men. However, her popularity is mostly due to the fact that sheknows first-hand the life of Russian oligarchs who are protagonists of her works.Thanks to Oksana Robski’s novels, ordinary Russians have the opportunity to fictionallyvisit residences of the Russian business elite.
