Tara’s CBR-III Review #26: The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things by JT Leroy

I passed the halfway point and right on schedule! Here’s the beginning of my review for The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things and the rest can be found in my blog here:

Cannonball Read III: Book #26/52
Published: 1999
Pages: 250 (11,385 total so far)
Genre: Fake memoir?

First of all, apparently they was a bunch of controversy over the author of this book back when it came out. It was branded as being a true story about a young boy, but then it was found out to have actually been written by a middle aged woman who was going so far as to actually have another woman pose as “JT LeRoy” (he’s suggested to be transgendered) at book signings. Anyways, I knew all this before I read the book so I read it solely as a work of fiction.
