PEGGY DEN­I­MAL

Harper's Bazaar (UK) - - Contributors -

‘The joys and sor­rows of a whole life flour­ish in the space of a few pages,’ ob­serves Erica Wag­ner in praise of Peggy Den­i­mal’s short story, ‘The Look­ing Glass’, which beat hun­dreds of other en­tries to win Bazaar’s 2018 com­pe­ti­tion (page 90). Born in France, Den­i­mal moved to the

UK 25 years ago and lives in Sus­sex with her hus­band and two teenage daugh­ters. She is cur­rently writ­ing a one-woman play about moth­er­hood.

A lit­er­ary char­ac­ter you ad­mire ‘Nancy in Oliver Twist. She may be flawed, but Dick­ens gave her sym­pa­thy and in­tegrity. I re­spect brave char­ac­ters.’

An au­thor you would like to meet ‘Philip Pull­man.’ Your per­fect bank-hol­i­day week­end ‘A walk on the South Downs with my fam­ily, lunch by the River Arun, fol­lowed by a sunny evening bar­be­cue with friends.’
