One of the main achievements of multiculturalism researchers is the proof of the need to reject hierarchy and the compelling demonstration of mutual influence and dependency of very different cultural systems. Complex processes of cultural interaction produce new meanings and new cultural codes, even beyond geographical and national boundaries. The article presents the novels by Lyudmila Ulitskaya, Timur Pulatov, and Renat Bekkin. These works refer to Crimean Tatars or based directly on this topic. The analysis of the proposed stories allows us to put the Crimean Tatar world into a broad cultural context and speak of the existence of a “Crimean Tatar text’’ in Russian literature. This solution, in turn, allows the addition of a number of patterns (symbols-images) — details of history and everyday life, cultural artifacts and features of the landscape, gastronomy and architecture — which form the concept of “local text’’.
