'Mad Men' didn't turn scientists into unlikely TV stars. But if they did ...The blockbuster of 2022, set in 1960s California, introducing the unique and unforgettable Elizabeth Zott. 'I loved LESSONS IN CHEMISTRY and am devastated to have finished it!' NIGELLA LAWSON 'A book that sparks joy with every page. LESSONS IN CHEMISTRY is both funny and rousing- it had me laughing one minute and air-punching the next. Bonnie Garmus has created an unforgettable heroine' ELIZABETH DAY 'It's the world versus Elizabeth Zott, an extraordinary woman determined to live on her own terms, and I had no trouble choosing a side. Lessons in Chemistry is a page-turning and highly satisfying tale- zippy, zesty, and Zotty' MAGGIE SHIPSTEAD, author of GREAT CIRCLE

'Your ability to change everything - including yourself - starts here' ELIZABETH ZOTT Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, Elizabeth Zott would be the first to point out that there is no such thing. But it's the early 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute take a very unscientific view of equality. Except for one- Calvin Evans; the lonely, brilliant, Nobel-prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with - of all things - her mind. True chemistry results. But like science, life is unpredictable. Which is why a few years later, Elizabeth Zott finds herself not only a single mother, but the reluctant star of America's most beloved cooking show Supper at Six. Elizabeth's unusual approach to cooking ('combine one tablespoon acetic acid with a pinch of sodium chloride') proves revolutionary. But as her following grows, not everyone is happy. Because as it turns out, Elizabeth Zott isn't just teaching women to cook. She's daring them to change the status quo. Meet the unconventional, uncompromising Elizabeth Zott.
