Frankissstein: A Love Story
Jeanette Winterson

Fiction - Published: 21/May/2019 - ISBN: 9781787331419

In Brexit Britain, a young transgender doctor is falling in love with a professor leading the public debate around AI. Meanwhile, Ron Lord is set to make his fortune launching a new generation of sex dolls for lonely men everywhere. In Phoenix, a cryogenics facility houses dozens of bodies of men and women who are medically and legally dead... but waiting to return to life. But the scene is set in 1816, when nineteen-year-old Mary Shelley writes a story about creating a non-biological life-form. 'Beware, for I am fearless and therefore powerful.' Winterson's audacious novel is about the bodies we live in and the bodies we desire.
