In Frankenstein's Cat: Cuddling Up to Biotech's Brave New Beasts, Emily Anthes takes readers from Petri dish to pet store, exploring how the world's fauna are being reinvented. She searches for the revolutionary breeds of beasts that are slowly taking their places in the world. What do these creatures look like? Who is behind creating them? What do these new scientific superpowers mean for animals? And what do the ways in which we're choosing to shape animal bodies say about humans?
