Manuela Gretkowska is regarded as the most scandalous woman writer in contemporary Poland. In this new collection of short stories, her characteristic essay-like narrative style gives way to a bent for telling stories. The author and her characters interpret the nature of postmodernist reality. The Passionary is strongly erotic text with female narrator. It contains a beatiful description of the sexual act. In the last couple of stories Gretkowska's essay temperament gives way to the spirit of story telling.
