Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Frankissstein by Jeanette Winterson.

From 'one of the most gifted writers working today' (New York Times) comes an audacious new novel about the bodies we live in and the bodies we desire.

In Brexit Britain, a young transgender doctor called Ry is falling in love - against their better judgement - with Victor Stein, a celebrated professor leading the public debate around AI.

Meanwhile, Ron Lord, just divorced and living with Mum again, is set to make his fortune launching a new generation of sex dolls for lonely men everywhere.

Across the Atlantic, in Phoenix, Arizona, 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 19-year-old Mary Shelley writes a story about creating a nonbiological life form. ‘Beware, for I am fearless and therefore powerful.'

What will happen when homo sapiens is no longer the smartest being on the planet? Jeanette Winterson shows us how much closer we are to that future than we realise. Funny and furious, bold and clear-sighted, Frankissstein is a love story about life itself.

Gothic Futurism?

interesting concept, for those who love the original novel or have an interest in the Romantics or the future of AI.
It's very (too?) cerebral, perhaps to the detriment of plot/pace at times. A little spoiled by a very dodgy accent for the American characters!
