Peter Leggatt is a writer and journalist who lives in Paris. Since graduating from Trinity College, Cambridge in 2011 he has been writing literary fiction and journalism. Doll is his debut novel; his first short story was published in Areté magazine in 2015, of which Craig Raine said, “We exist to publish this sort of thing,” and he has written a number of cover features for the Times Literary Supplement. He is currently launching a YouTube channel, under his own name, which will be a serious book review until it is used as a platform for the shameless promotion of his own writing. His current obsessions are bookbinding, collecting rare books and street workout. He grew up in London and is twenty-eight years old.
