    Abstract:
    This paper studies the ‘ambiguous and abject’ identity experienced by the organ recipient through the character of Judge Spencer in Myles Edwin Lee’s novel The Donation (2008)1. In doing so, it intends to understand the underlying complexities of the speculative ‘identities of recipients’- most often, the deeply disturbing and very scary ways in which transplants haunt the imaginations of recipients after the donation process.
