Review: Author: The JT LeRoy Story


Though key events in the real-life and very public saga of literary sensation JT Leroy happened 10 to 15 years ago, the subject remains a sore one for many who played a part in LeRoy?s complex and multilayered story.

JT LeRoy?s novel Sarah and short-story collection The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things earned rare praise from critics and passionate devotion among readers drawn to Leroy?s gritty tales of prostitution and drug abuse, all told from the perspective of a preteen boy thrust onto the streets by an abusive mother. It didn?t hurt that LeRoy?s stories were presented as the semi-autobiographical work of an unschooled 20-year-old writer.?
