More Memoir Murmurs: Laura Albert's Next Book?

Daily News

Online Only, posted 9.14.06

The New York Daily News reported yesterday that Laura Albert, the cocreator of JT LeRoy, the fictional author of Sarah (Bloomsbury, 2000) and The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things (Bloomsbury, 2001), has enlisted New York City literary agent David Kuhn to sell a memoir.

Albert, along with her partner, Geoffrey Knoop, and his half-sister Savannah (who appeared as LeRoy in public), carried on the hoax for over five years before the truth was revealed by the New York Times earlier this year. The current issue of the Paris Review features an interview with Albert, conducted by senior editor Nathaniel Rich, in which she is largely unapologetic.
