The Times seems to have gone into the book-proposal business today. In the Metro section, Alan Feuer — war reporter and a memoirist himself — practically pitched, wrote, and blurbed the case of JT LeRoy imposter Laura Albert, describing it as "a literary cautionary tale, the story of a writer who hid behind her own assumed identity and lost herself while reaching for the truth." Paging Nan Talese! Get Rudin on line two! Because Albert's got quite a story to tell: drugs, sexual abuse, truckers with a spanking fetish. Or does Feuer want to tell it for her? Check out some of the purplest prose we've seen since Rick Bragg left the Gray Lady: "Life at home, meanwhile, was bad enough," he writes. "Ms. Albert ran away. She landed in the punk scene, in the East Village, with the hustlers and the addicts … She was still in her early teens."
