“Sex, death, flowers—rivers, seas, sleep. They all have beds.
This was my very first thought.”
The first part of this story is told from the perspective of a sex doll.
The second from the perspective of the man who owns her.
Peter Leggatt’s debut novel starts with the thoughts of a sex doll as she comes to consciousness inside her box, and opens as she’s delivered to the apartment of her owner J…before he opens her. What ensues is a very modern love affair, teetering between tragedy and the darkly comic. At a moment when debate over gender and identity is increasingly fraught Doll affords a provocative new perspective on love and objectification.
