內容簡介

『你當小心,我的無懼,就是我無窮的力量。』

  創造生命,自古令人著迷。

  十九世紀初的瑪麗‧雪萊,寫下傳世的科學怪人,是啟蒙運動以來,人類對醫學的猜想。而當代的科學怪人,更為完美、真實,而且高度智能,甚至可能超越人類。當人類不再是地球上最高等的智能生命,這一切會變成什麼樣子?

  《柳橙不是唯一的水果》作者珍奈‧溫特森(Jeanette Winterson),巧妙地為讀者呈現真實而可見的未來樣貌。風趣,充滿生氣,勇敢無懼,獨家見解的未來世界。新版的科學怪人,如何再次找回屬於它的愛情與生命。

  脫歐後的英國,人來人往。

  一名跨性別醫生,萊(Ry),愛上了史坦(Victor Stein)醫生,史坦是引領大眾對AI議題展開討論的知名人士;榮(Ron Lord)離婚後搬回老家與媽媽同住,著手研究新一代充氣娃娃,為廣大的孤獨男子滿足需求。

  地域穿越,橫跨整個大西洋,來到美國亞利桑那州的鳳凰城,以低溫冷凍技術保存著大量的男人與女人的軀體──它們在法律上與醫學判定上,都已達成死亡的定義。但技術的發展,讓他們靜靜等待復活。

  時空轉移,來到一八一六年,十九歲的瑪麗雪萊,正在創作關於無生命體的新小說。當代智能與科技的發展,與過往故事,虛實交錯。人事時地物,如四季輪替,卻轉不出人性的渴望。而故事會如何進行下去?

  From 'one of the most gifted writers working today' (New York Times) comes an audacious new novel about the bodies we live in and the bodies we desire

  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.

  Review

  "Yes, the book we have all been waiting for. Yes, everything Winterson has always done so well. Yes, above and beyond anything that is yet to be written." (Daisy Johnson)

  "Astonishing. Bold. Teeming with wit and intellectual prowess. Winterson is a literary giant. She remains one of my favourite writers." (Irenosen Okojie)

  "Winterson reboots Mary Shelley's Frankenstein for the 21st Century, launching us into a hold-on-to-your hat modern-day horror story about very modern-day neuroses and issues." (Rebecca Thomas BBC News)

  "Intelligent and inventive… Frankisstein is very funny. There has always been a fine line between horror and high camp, and this is a boundary that Winterson gleefully exploits." (Robert Douglas-Fairhurst The Times)

  "Refreshingly, Jeanette Winterson’s Frankisstein…is a wildly inventive reimagining of one of science fiction’s most beloved stories… lyrical, gloriously raunchy, pulpy and absurd." (Helen Marshall New Scientist)
