    Pornografia's narrator, an author named Witold Gombrowicz, meets a swarthy and overly formal man named Fyderyk at a Warsaw house party, and the two soon become engaged in a business of a dubious (if not downright criminal) nature. COSMOS is a strange novel about how one little display of perversion can trigger in an impressionable mind a web of misinterpretation and paranoia. In chapters we see the young narrator slowly losing the plot, finding ominous and bizarre connections between the tiniest things.4/5(21).
