"a tribute to our better natures"

The Guardian

***LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019***
**LONGLISTED FOR THE COMEDY WOMEN IN PRINT PRIZE 2020**

A radical love story for right now, from 'one of the most gifted writers working today' (New York Times).

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 cryonics 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.'

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.

'Jeanette Winterson's Frankissstein won't disappoint. A modern take on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, it's a fascinating and engrossing look at AI, science, gender fluidity and, ultimately, what it really means to be human.' Nicola Sturgeon, New Statesman
