Author: The JT LeRoy Story takes us down the infinitely fascinating rabbit hole of how Laura Albert - like Cyrano de Bergerac on steroids - breathed not only words, but life, into her avatar for a decade. Albert's epic and entertaining account plunges us into a glittery world of rock shows, fashion events, and the Cannes red carpet where LeRoy becomes a mysterious sensation. As she recounts this astonishing odyssey, Albert also reveals the intricate web spun by irrepressible creative forces within her. Her extended and layered JT LeRoy performance still infuriates many; but for Albert, channeling her brilliant fiction through another identity was the only possible path to self-expression. 2016 Copyright 2016 A&E Television Networks, Dogwoof and RatPac Documentary Films, LLC.
