A new feature will be coming soon to ASVOF…book reviews by Laura Albert


Laura Albert and DP
Laura Albert

Laura Albert is the author of the novels "Sarah" and "Harold's End,"

as well as the story collection "The Heart Is Deceitful Above All

Things," all published under the name JT LeRoy.  Laura wrote the original

screenplay for Gus Van Sant's "Elephant" and has written for the HBO

series "Deadwood."

I'm looking forward to her book reviews and Laura is also sitting on the ASVOFF 6 jury.
