Description

Writer Jeanette Winterson talks with Recode’s Kara Swisher about her latest book, Frankissstein: A Love Story. Winterson discusses the intertwined histories of LGBT+ people, science fiction literature and technology; how she decided to write a modern twist on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein with a technological bent; and how Shelley foresaw the intersection of bodies and machines. Plus: Is tech becoming the real monster in modern life? And who is the Victor Frankenstein of this era?

Featuring:

Jeanette Winterson (@Wintersonworld), author, Frankissstein: A Love Story

Host:

Kara Swisher (@karaswisher), Recode co-founder and editor-at-large
