Except Mr. Clemens and Mr. Twain aren’t nearly as jaw-dropping provocative.It’s one of those “must-see-to-believe, one-of-a-kind” kind of films that has Oscar written all over it. From top to bottom, beginning to end.On January 9, 2006 The New York Times sent shockwaves through the literary world when it unmasked “it boy” wunderkind JT LeRoy, whose tough prose about a sordid childhood had captivated icons and luminaries internationally. It turned out LeRoy didn’t actually exist. He was the creative expression of 40-year-old San Francisco former phone-sex operator turned housewife, Laura Albert. Author: The JT LeRoy Story takes us down the infinitely fascinating rabbit hole of how Laura Albert – like a Cyrano de Bergerac on steroids – breathed not only words, but life, into her avatar for a decade.
