9780099511380: Vintage Monsters: Frankenstein & Sexing the Cherry (Vintage Classic Twins)

2 classic books for the price of 1: Vintage Monsters is a limited edition gift pack which consists of beautifully designed separate volumes of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and Jeanette Winterson's Sexing the Cherry.

Vintage Monsters is just one of ten Vintage Classic Twins to collect. Each twin consists of two books: a specially designed limited edition of one modern classic title and one established classic work. The books in each pair have been carefully selected to provide a thought-provoking combination.

Frankenstein: One freezing morning, a lone man wandering across the artic ice caps is rescued from starvation by a ship's captain. Victor Frankenstein's story is one of ambition, murder and revenge. As a young scientist he pushed moral boundaries in order to cross the final scientific frontier and create life. But his creation is a monster stitched together from grave-robbed body parts who has no place in the world, and his life can only lead to tragedy.

Sexing the Cherry: Sexing the Cherry follows the adventures of Jordan, an explorer, and his mother, the gigantic and violent 'Dog Woman'. Jeanette Winterson's stunning novel celebrates the power of the imagination as it juggles with our perception of history and reality; love and sex; lies and truths; and 12 dancing princesses who lived happily ever after, but not with their husbands.

Review:

" Frankenstein: A masterpiece" (Philip Pullman)

" Frankenstein: More relevant today than ever" (Benjamin Zephaniah)

" Frankenstein: One of the most original and complete productions of the day" (Percy Bysshe Shelley)

" Sexing the Cherry: Sexing the Cherry confirms Winterson as a superb literary acrobat. She makes us believe, for the duration of her tall tales, in the power of imagination to change the way we perceive, and therefore live, our lives" ( Independent)

" Sexing the Cherry: It is a book that debunks some myths and creates others, a book of Rabelaisian inquiry, of innocence and bawdiness, fury and joy" ( The Times)
