Liam Pieper has been making quite a name for himself in recent years. He published his début memoir, The Feel Good Hit of the Year, to acclaim in 2014. He followed this up with Mistakes Were Made (2015), a collection of four essays. Now, just over a year later, he has published his first novel, The Toymaker; one reviewer has even compared it favourably to J.M. Coetzee's Disgrace (1999).
