Laura Albert at The Moth “My Avatar & Me”



Please watch this and know how proud I am to have Laura Albert as a member of the ASVOFF 6 Jury.

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."


Her journalistic writing has been published in The New York Times, The

London Times, Spin, Interview, Vogue, Rolling Stone, Black Book, and

many other publications worldwide. Her fiction has also

been published in anthologies, art books and catalogs, and literary



Laura collaborated with director and playwright Robert Wilson for the

VOOM video portraits and continued the collaboration with the catalog

for his "Frontiers: Visions of the Frontier" at IVAM Valencia. She has

been photographed by Steven Klein for QVEST magazine and by Kai Regan

for his "Reckless Endangerment" at ALIFE, and has done fashion shoots

for Christian Lacroix and John Galliano.





My favorite line in the New York times accusing Laura of being "A fake fiction writer."
