Intymny pamiętnik z czasów pobytu autorki w Szwecji oraz podróży po Europie, mówi odważnie o przeżyciach z pogranicza fizjologii i metafizyki, a także – o czasem bolesnym, czasem zaś komicznym procesie stawania się Polką. Takiej książki w naszej literaturze jeszcze nie było.

I am writing my BA-paper at the moment on the Polka by Gretkowska. I really did not expect what a fascinating reading this would be! Who is willing to share ideas about this book, please do not hesitate to write me!

I love Manuela. Not for her literally talent, but for who and what she is.
