Laura Albert is a literary genius. Her nom de plume (JT Leroy) scandal rocked certain peoples' worlds apart. This memoir is written by her ex-sister-in-law who played JT Leroy in public. JT Leroy was Laura Albert's nom de plume. I loved reading about Savannah-as-JT's love affair with Asia Argento, the Hollywood travels and tales, and the debut of the Asia Argento film which was adpated from a JT book at Cannes. Ultimatley, this is Laura's Story, and Savannah's version only seems like a tiny part. I can't wait to read more by Laura Albert and hear her side of everything. Also, Savannah was sort of awful to Albert when she could have been amazing. The ending just sort of trailed off, and left a lot of info out.
