JT LeRoy

His first book Sarah, published in 1999, propelled young JT LeRoy to literary stardom. His semi-autobiographical account of a childhood blighted by drug and sexual abuse in America’s underbelly earned him a cult status and the adoration of both the literati and Hollywood elite. But more shocking than the topics LeRoy’s books explored was the truth behind them, finally exposed in 2006: LeRoy was a well-crafted persona created by Jewish Brooklynite Laura Albert and embodied by her boyfriend’s sister, the androgynous Savannah Knoop.
