Summary
"The story of the most compelling literary 'hoax' of recent times. Laura Albert writes as her 'avatar', a disenfranchised young queer man' named JT LeRoy. When her debut novel becomes a best-seller and JT becomes the darling of the literary world, she comes up with a unique solution to preserve her anonymity but give life to her nom-de-plume. Enter her boyfriend's androgynous fun-loving sister Savannah Knoop, who connects with Laura's punk, feminist, outsider universe and agrees to be JT in the public eye"--Container
