Author: The JT LeRoy Story

What is real and what is fake in art?

It’s an odd question, I suppose. Isn’t all art fake?


Author: The JT LeRoy Story is a fascinating documentary about the greatest literary hoax of all time, one which managed to fool publishers, literary agents, filmmakers, and a host of celebrities.


I reviewed the film for Film Ireland.



The film is currently playing in cinemas in Ireland and the UK. Go see it as soon as you can.

Verdict: Five Hoodwinked Bonos out of Five
