"Marie Calloway writes with more clarity and restraint and lack of restraint and concision and plot and directness about human interaction and sex and sex work and sexual encounters than anyone I can think of right now. Her work is moving, funny, exciting, and extreme without ever seeming inhuman or forced and she's younger than everyone else."—Tao Lin"'Adrien Brody' is riveting, fresh, and written with a distinctive new voice."—Stephen Elliott"That's the most incredible thing I've ever seen.""What is?" I asked, though I knew."Your face right now."I was vaguely aware my eyes were open very wide.Marie Calloway's fiction debut,what purpose did i serve in your life, is both a portrait of American youth and a gamble, a chance taken, in answer to the following: for a young woman, is there such a thing as the soul, a life more than the organs, or is she forever recalled to her body? Marie does not answer this question but instead acts it out through a series of intertwined stories. The result is a fusillade of brutally self-aware and insightful pieces that take on the meaning of sex, art, and, most of all, survival in the age of Internet-based sex work and love that can flame and turn to ash in the space of a tweet.Marie Calloway(b. 1990) is interested in sexuality and gender. She rose to prominence in 2011 with her controversial story, "Adrien Brody," which was published by Muumuu House.
