favourite JT book: Sarah

+favourite character from JT's books: The Black Snake.

+why do you like JT's books? I like sarah because it has surprised me all the way through. every turn i saw as unexpected. it opened up my eyes to a brave protagonist with all the will of wind to sweep her in .

i like the heart because it moves quickly in and out and then you find yourself wanting to be spanked with a belt.

i look forward to reading harolds end.

So, I'm posting more caps. I need to do something until I get my books :) (I bought Dennis Cooper's "Try" too.)

Here goesCollapse )

I'm new. I watched Asia's movie and read "Sarah" and now all I want is to read the rest of her (yea, I know about the hoax)books! I thought I'd post some caps from the first scene, just to contribute, I guess...:) Enjoy!

More hereCollapse )

Does anyone know the official release date for Labour? I looked on the computer at Borders and it just said "July"... but it's July now, so I wondered if anyone's got a date or if I'll just have to keep checking back all month.

Okay. Please, I would like ONLY THOSE who know factually what I'm going to ask. Even if the factual answer is, "nobody can be 100% sure", that is fine. Gossip seems to be the flood drowning most of any truth to either sides angle on the story, so please lets have us a very intellectual conversation full of what we DO know and nothing more.

Also before I ask, this really doesn't affect the work, I might note, for me. I'm always going to get the newest book when its got JT LEROY as author. Those first three works won me over permanently. They will always be great pieces of writing for the rest of history to read and enjoy. Now then...

Is it OFFICIAL or something now, that JT is in fact a made up person, a female author who got her cousin or whoever to pose in public as this shy teenage former male prostitute and drug addict? Or are there still enough doubts, still enough people who will strongly claim and have no reason to do so, that Leroy is in fact a human young man that they quite are fond of, have met, talked to in person, hugged, and all that to keep it a question for the world over to ponder?

I don't have the money to buy the dvd of the movie just released, but I read it has an interview with Leroy in it. I assume the question is still not full answered, at least for those of whom like me who initially believe he exists and warrant proof otherwise to genuinely convince me there is no Jeremiah Terminator Leroy.

I'm sure it was discussed to death here long ago when the story first broke and what I'm questioning is nothing new. But I figure since some time has passed and because the dvd just came out, and some more clues exist to support either side, it'd be worth a post in this community.

I look foreward to JT's new novella! Harold's End was quite good, if frustratingly short. I guess this new one'll suffer the same fate. Aw well. I look foreward to those watercolor paintings also.

Good eve.

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask this. I was just wondering, where did the Terminator group go? It probably shut down. However, before, the moderators were quite adamant about not closing the Yahoo group. Perhaps I missed something?


4/30/06 10:16 pm - d_r_o_n_e - Editorial in Oxford American

Oxford American magazine has a long editorial piece on their own experience with publishing a JT Leroy story (the "Loretta Lynn" piece, linked a while back on here i think), the editor's thoughts on the whole hoax thing, and factchecking with respect to memoir/nonfiction/etc.

It's up on their website here:
