Frankissstein by Jeanette Winterson
First, let me just say that Frankissstein is an excellent title for a book, no? And luckily, the story Jeanette Winterson brings us within it is just as grand as it tracks 19-year-old Mary Shelley as she pens a story about a scientist who creates a new and terrifying life form. Then the story leaps ahead to modern day Brexit Britain, where Ry, a young transgender doctor, falls in love with a celebrated professor working in AI and conducting experiments beneath the city. And then the story . . . well, you might as well just read it, because it only gets weirder (and more brilliant) from there.
