Her literary debut Kosovo (Mademesis 2012) was received with enthusiasm by both readers and critics and has been recognized as a self-portrait of contemporary thirty-year-olds. Her story One Night Stand, was published in the anthology Bookopen. Since a lot changes after thirty (Nowy Swiat, 2013), has established her as an author of psychological narratives written in simple sentences which cut deep under the surface of the words. Her next book Levante (BookFlow, 2015) brought her popular recognition as an expert on highly problematic issues. Her novel Under the Surface (Pisarskie Olsnienia, 2018) was highly regarded by the critics, among other things for the courage of raising the controversial subject of relationships resulting from codependency rather than love. Interpersonal relationships, sexuality, existential fears, a search for one’s own self and identity and for lost time—all of these are well known challenges to readers, challenges which Niewinska addresses in a courageous and uncompromising manner.
