Jeff Feuerzeig Unravels the Literary Saga of JT LeRoy: VICE Talks Film

In 2006, The New York Times sent shockwaves through the literary world when it revealed that "it boy" JT LeRoy, did not exist; he was the creative expression of 40-year-old housewife, Laura Albert.

‘Author: The JT LeRoy Story’ takes us down the infinitely fascinating rabbit hole of how Laura Albert breathed not only words, but life, into her avatar for a decade.

In this episode of VICE Talks Film, VICE sits down with filmmaker Jeff Feuerzeig who beautifully unravels the complex and incredibly layered saga of JT LeRoy, in his new documentary about the woman behind the scandal.

‘Author: The JT LeRoy Story’ opens this week in theaters across the United States. Directed by Jeff Feuerzeig and produced by VICE Films.
