By

Rating
J.T. LeRoy's Sarah was one of the most striking debuts of last year. Twenty-years-old, with a growing cult following in America, J.T. LeRoy has gained passionate admirers in the UK. We are now proud to publish his collection of short stories. These loosely connected autobiographical stories describe the harrowing experiences of a teenager living on the streets. J.T. LeRoy's voice is lyrical and nuanced as he shapes his dark subjects into something utterly strange and magical. Fresh, raw, and absolutely unforgettable, The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things will prove LeRoy to be one of the most gifted writers of his generation.
