"Strikingly relevant...Darkly funny and poignant...Lessons in Chemistry’s excellent experiment [is] quirky and heartwarming." - The Atlantic

Elizabeth Zott is a chemist in the 1960s. The problem is that she is the only one who views herself that way. Her male colleagues cannot get past the fact that she's a woman and treat her more as a secretary and doormat, acknowledging her only long enough to steal her work. That is until Calvin Evans, another brilliant chemist, comes along and really sees all that she is capable of. But like science, life is unexpected. And so a few years later, Elizabeth finds herself as single mother and, reluctantly, as star of America's most popular cooking show. In her heart, she still desires to be truly seen as a chemist. With her unusual approach to cooking she isn't just teaching how to cook, but also daring to change the status quo. Laugh-out-loud funny, shrewdly observant, original and vibrant as its protagonist.


Bonnie Garmus is a copywriter and creative director who’s worked widely in the fields of technology, medicine, and education. She’s also an open-water swimmer, a rower and a mother. Born in California and most recently from Seattle, she currently lives in London.
