Oleg Pavlov (Russian: Павлов, Олег Олегович; 16 March 1970 – 7 October 2018) was a Russian novelist. From Moscow, he was the winner of the Russian Booker Prize. Pavlov went on to win the Prize in 2002 with his next book, the second novel in what would become the trilogy Tales from the Last Days.[1]

His first novel, Captain of the Steppe, has been translated into English and published by And Other Stories in 2013.[2]

In his 2003 book "The Russian Man in the 20th Century", he wrote about Russian life, not only based on his personal experience.

Pavlov died in Moscow on 7 October 2018 from a heart attack at the age of 48.[3]
