Lisa Glass reviews Frankenstein and books based on it

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:08 pm on 19 May 2020

The book credited with being the first science fiction novel is over 200 years old and Lisa Glass has just finished reading Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.

She talks about this - along with two spin-off novels - Frankisstein penned by Jeanette Winterson and The strange case of the alchemist's daughter written by Theodora Goss.
