More on the Identity of JT Leroy


Like researchers lining the shores of Loch Ness, determined to prove the existence of a sea monster or equally driven to show that it’s all a hoax, more and more people are wading into the JT Leroy question. In Who’s That Boy/Girl?, Laura Barton and The Guardian add in their research to the mix. I don’t know that Barton solves the mystery, but it’s an interesting article that mentions Tatum O’Neal, Winona Ryder. Bono, Billy Corgan, Conor Oberst, Bryan Adams, Nancy Sinatra, Courtney Love, Shirley Manson, Sharon Olds, Dennis Cooper, Mary Gaitskill, Sean Lennon and Harper Simon (son of Paul Simon and Carrie Fisher) and many others.

Shit, it’s early in the morning, I’m struggling to wake up after about three hours of sleep, so I’ll admit I’m not really with it, but is there anyone not speculated to be JT Leroy?
