Laura Albert

From New York magazine: Who is the Real JT LeRoy? A search for the true identity of a great literary hustler.
When I first read J. T. LeRoy, for whatever reason, I plain didn't buy it.
Then, when the news broke that J. T. Leroy was the persona and deftly crafted literary hoax by one Laura Albert, I was hooked on the para-literature that emerged devoted to unmasking the jig.
Here is a writer whose relationship to reality was specifically that of a liar, hustler and thief.
