Synopsis

What would Mary Shelley think of artificial intelligence? In her new novel Frankissstein, Jeanette Winterson collapses the centuries, contrasting Shelley’s creation with a modern world where technology, sex, politics and money converge in a nightmarish future. Join Winterson for a rollicking queer feminist critique, rolled up in a hilarious love story where a young transgender doctor falls for a celebrated professor of AI.
