In their works, are embodied two mentalities, two cultures, and most importantly, two different ways of doing literature, rules of different expression skills. One of them is Elvira Dones that with her particular style bring to the reader hands, special stories of different characters and themes, from Klea, an autobiographical narrative, to Andrea with the theme of neuroses; from Hana, from north of Albania to the story of three women besieged in their house in Prishtina. The author write directly in Italian language  perhaps  in it she found all the expressiveness required that can worthily accompany her stories, in which she express herself no longer influences the profile of the characters.
