Flash ёction of the contemporary Siberian writer M.A. Tarkovsky is considered by critics and literary scholars in the context of late traditionalism. The motive of chaos and loss of national / traditional, relevant for the post-village literature are becoming mainstream in the prose of the writer and are manifested in the literary texts by R.V. Senchin, A. N. Varlamov, O.O. Pavlov and others. The writer himself deёnes the boundary of transition from the crisis of national identity to the problem of rethinking and native values preservation. The hero- intellectual is bound to return to the folk origins, reconnect with nature and feel the original existence. Another way of survival is constructed in the ёctional world of M.A. Tarkovsky: the writer creates the ideology of asceticism and approves his own cultural and geographical marginality (A.I. Razuvalova). Understanding of tradition as the most important category of human existence is transformed in the яash ёction of the author.
