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 , when nineteen-year-old Mary Shelley writes a story about creating a non-biological life-form.
What will happen when homo sapiens is no longer the smartest being on the planet?
Jeanette Winterson: Frankissstein
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. Adopted by Pentecostal parents she was raised to be a missionary. Discovering early the power of books she left home at 16, and published her first novel at Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit is based on her own upbringing but using herself as a fictional character.
She writes regularly for The Guardian. She believes that art is for everyone, and it is her mission to prove it.
