  JT LeRoy penned two bestselling novels before it was discovered that he didn’t exist. LeRoy was a pen name used by Laura Albert - that became a little too real. Albert’s relative even went out in public as LeRoy. Jeff Feuerzeig heard about the story and decided to make a film about it. “Author: The JT LeRoy Story”, documents the creation and eventual breakdown of the JT LeRoy personality.
