JT Leroy is a twenty one-year-old writer… With two books of fiction based on his experiences as the son of a truck stop prostitute. Hi. I'm JT. Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy. There's not a lot of discovery in publishing William Burroughs. Genet. Allen Ginsberg. To hear a new voice was exciting. He doesn't like to show his face to the press. JT, I just thank you from the bottom of my heart. Some people think that JT Leroy might not really exist. My name's Laura Albert. And I am the writer JT Leory. I felt like a misfit. I didn't want to write as myself. JT Leroy was created from my dream. Blonde-haired, blue-eyed boy turning tricks, living on the street The books were taking off. JT had to walk amongst us. Savannah was over at my house and I said, "You look like JT Leroy". You'll wear the sunglass, a blonde wig. It was like Frankenstein. "Let there be life." JT Leroy is a literary it-boy It was a revolving door of celebrities. I see Bono giving JT industry advice. Suddenly, JT is the go-to person for the fashion world. I showed just enough to make them interested. The media was tugging pretty hard at the curtain. It turns out he may not be a he and may not even exist. I didn't know how to shut it down. It feels like the whole world is watching. Suddenly I've got a call. He says, "I'm gonna get you." He knows everything. There is a huge tornado that's about to hit. All the headlines are saying "the biggest literary hoax of our time". It is not a hoax.
