really liked it

This is experimental fiction in the vein of Chris Kraus' I Love Dick mixed with an element of Dennis Cooper's masochism. It is experimental in the sense that the narrator "Marie Calloway" incorporates (or appears to incorporate) Gchats, FB posts, and critical reviews of (and responses to) her controversial story "Adrien Brody," a first person account of a sexual encounter with a literary idol. The author becomes the character, or almost indistinguishable from the character in the critical reviews. In this way the character herself becomes a a cipher, and the titular question is all the more intriguing.
