“Wildly entertaining and informative, but also alive and ever-changing, provoking new questions at each turn.”~New York Magazine

Aroview: The seductively fascinating account of a major literary con, Jeremiah ‘Terminator’ LeRoy, who became a cult celebrity through his raw and confessional writings and image as a gender-bending prodigy.

But the actual writer and public face were not one and the same, a situation that spun as much out of circumstance as manipulation, with the eventual exposure revealing an even more compelling picture - an outsider artist spinning herself a maze of identity as complex as it is entertaining.
