Girl Boy Girl
How I Became JT LeroyBook - 2008
"When the New York Times unmasked Savannah Knoop as the face of the mysterious author JT LeRoy, JT's fans, mentors, and readers came to terms with the fact that the gay-male-ex-truck-stop-prostitute-turned-literary-wunderkind was really a girl from San Francisco, whose sister-in-law had written the books. Girl Boy Girl is the story of how Savannah Knoop led this bizarre double life for six years, trading a precarious existence as a college dropout for a life in which she was embraced by celebrities and artists. Telling her side of the story for the first time, Savannah reveals how being perceived as a boy gave her a sense of confidence and entitlement she never had before, [yet] ultimately found relief when the truth came out"--Cover flap.
