Description:

One of Alasdair Gray's most brilliant creations, Poor Things is a postmodern revision of Frankenstein that replaces the traditional monster with Bella Baxter'”a beautifulyoung erotomaniac brought back to life with the brain of an infant.Godwin Baxter's scientific ambition to create the perfect companion isrealized when he finds the drowned body of Bella, but his dream isthwarted by Dr. Archibald McCandless's jealous love for Baxter'screation.The hilarious tale of love and scandal that ensues would be "thewhole story" in the hands of a lesser author (which in fact it is, forthis account is actually written by Dr. McCandless). For Gray, though,this is only half the story, after which Bella (a.k.a. VictoriaMcCandless) has her own say in the matter.Satirizing the classic Victorian novel, Poor Things is ahilarious political allegory and a thought-provoking duel between thedesires of men and the independence of women, from one of Scotland'smost accomplished authors.
