Frankissstein: A Love Story

Jeanette Winterson


In stock


***LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019***’Beware, for I am fearless and therefore powerful.’Inspired by Mary Shelley’s gothic classic Frankenstein, discover this audacious new novel about the bodies we live in and the bodies we desire. As Brexit grips Britain, Ry, a young transgender doctor, is falling in love. The object of their misguided affection: the celebrated AI-specialist, Professor Victor Stein.

Meanwhile, Ron Lord, just divorced and living with his Mum again, is set to make his fortune with a new generation of sex dolls for lonely men everywhere. Ranging from 1816, when nineteen-year-old Mary Shelley pens her radical first novel, to a cryonics facility in present-day Arizona where the dead wait to return to life, Frankissstein shows us how much closer we are to the future than we realise. ‘Intelligent and inventive…very funny’ The Times ‘One of the most gifted writers working today’ New York Times
