Summary/Abstract: In the historically sanctioned discourse, presenting the masculine ethos of the writer in exile,the question of female immigration narrative, the female point of view, also demands careful reflection. Danuta Mostwin’s novels constitute the narration of women about women. This manner of story-telling emphasizes duality of the accepted role. This is because in this prose on the one hand we deal with showing the existential dimension of emigration (a woman speaks about women, she speaks overtly), and on the other hand — we find ourselves in the field of textualization of emigration: the woman is a writer and she is talking about women experiencing the world (she speaks covertly). That bond between existence and writing reveals a new kind of reading — the emigrational femininity and female writing in exile.
