Waterstones Says

The mercurial literary stylist delivers a typically rich slice of fiction that travels from Alexandria to Paris to a Scottish church in a tale of passionate love and scientific innovation.

What strange secret made rich, beautiful, tempestuous Bella Baxter irresistible to the poor Scottish medical student Archie McCandless? Was it her mysterious origin in the home of his monstrous friend Godwin Baxter, the genius whose voice could perforate eardrums?

This story of true love and scientific daring whirls the reader from the private operating-theatres of late-Victorian Glasgow through aristocratic casinos, low-life Alexandria and a Parisian bordello, reaching an interrupted climax in a Scottish church.

“Clever, and a bit bonkers.”

I didn't realise the author is an artist as well as an author, so like an Edward Carey, Poor Things was an unexpected visual treat. Godwin 'God' Baxter creates a female companion by reviving a suicide... More
