Jeanette Winterson’s hot-off-the-press new novel, Frankisstein: A Love Story, is a typically inventive, up-to-the-minute – though steeped in literary antecedents – work of fiction which breathes new life into Mary Shelley’s classic horror narrative. Time-shifting from Lake Geneva in 1815, where the 19-year-old Mary Shelley composed a story about creating artificial human life, to post-Brexit Britain and beyond, it takes in contemporary concerns about identity, consumerism and the out of control power of technology. At its heart is a moving love story.

Jeanette Winterson has written 10 novels as well as a non-fiction memoir.
