Poor Things, by Alasdair Gray

  • A subversive retelling of Frankenstein that replaces the monster with Bella Baxter - a beautiful young woman brought back to life with the brain of her unborn child. Set in late-Victorian Glasgow with adventures in Alexandria and Paris, the book is presented as a memoir by Archibald McCandless, a young Scottish medical student, who rivals Bella’s creator for her affections. In playful pastiche, this is followed by a letter from Bella to tell her side of the story, interwoven with historical notes both true and created.
