The JT LeRoy literary hoax is fact stranger than fiction. The opening shot of a gushing Winona Ryder says it all. The hoax was in place with celebs and an adoring public in awe of the new literary giant. But who was the mysterious JT LeRoy ? Jeff Feuerzeig's documentary is riveting viewing as JT LeRoy, or should I say Laura Albert, relates her story in the first person with backup celeb friends heard on phone recordings.
