Laurent Petitmangin was born in 1965 in Lorraine in a family of railway workers. He spent his first twenty years in Metz and then left his home town to pursue higher education in Lyon. He returned to Air France, a company for which he still works today. A great reader, he has been writing for about ten years. Ce qu’il faut de nuit, his first novel published in the autumn of 2020, was a huge critical and public success in France and abroad, immediately establishing the author as one of the voices to follow on the French literary scene. Ainsi Berlin is his second novel.
