The critics find her writing style as a fiction with bold self-irony; it is a fiction that shows, at the same time, a broad literary culture and a full range of storytelling techniques. Using different kind of “shifts” she is playing with meanings and allusions. The permanent dialogue between “I and the Other” she is moving everything that is “fixed” in “mobile” creating “new ethic” within the traditional literary norms. In her works there is a predominance of bizarre as aesthetic and ethical element creating original storytelling line
