Our So-Called JT LeRoy


Saturday, January 28, 2006

LeRoy's novels drew heavily on his own grim past as a drug abuser and teenage truckstop prostitute. He achieved critical success and rare literary stardom -- until it turned out he didn't exist. Kurt trades tales with Simon Dumenco, a magazine editor who knew "him" (in person, LeRoy was portrayed by a woman.)
