Girl Boy Girl

The story of how Savannah Knoop led the bizarre double life of cult author JT LeRoy for six years. Trading a precarious existence as a college drop- out for a life in which she was embraced by celebrities and artists, it is no wonder she kept it up so long. As Savannah and Laura Albert, Knoop's sister-in-law who authored the JT LeRoy books, struggled over control of the character, Savannah realised the game, and her deception, was over. Telling her side of the saga for the first time, Girl Boy Girl sheds light on one of contemporary literature's strangest episodes.
