Description For this study, we choose the latest novel by the Ukrainian writer Artem Chekh, Who are you?, as well as the novel by the Czech writer Lucie Faulerová DeathGirl. The purpose of our research is to outline the world of youth in modern literature and find out how young authors approach such a description. Generation Y is definitely por- trayed as vulnerable, because growing up in the 90s couldn’t help but leave its mark. This is caused by a number of problems – social, economic, family, where the model of the previous generation was often absent. Both of these novels focus on a young man’s struggle with his inner demons, somewhat different but having a significant impact on their lives.
