Lessons In Chemistry by Bonnie Grams
THE BOOK OF THE MOMENT
An immediate international bestseller and authentic word of mouth hit, Lessons in Chemistry is a book only growing in hype and for very good reason.
Join us tonight for a (spoiler free) interview with author @bonnie_garmus_author and her brilliant agent extraordinaire, @felicityblunt . We could have talked and laughed for hours, they give exclusive insight into the book and process from submission to fought over auction. What other debut has @brielarsonadapting it to screen and a signature cocktail designed by @stanleytucci (Felicity’s husband who has no doubt lived through the entire journey!).
Set in 1960s California, Elizabeth Zott is a genius scientist, a feminist and activist years before #metoo who is constantly underestimated and harassed. Her career takes a sudden unexpected detour when she becomes the star of a beloved TV cooking show and this is her story.
Compelling, propulsive and razor sharp, Garmus is able to deftly balance serious topics with a light, witty touch that is utterly mesmerising. Transcending genre, with a rich array of characters, there genuinely is nothing quite like it and no leading protagonist as vivid and distinct as the inimitable Zott.
We loved every moment of reading Lessons in Chemistry, both inhaling it in one sitting. Believe the hype from readers and press alike. Buy it now. You will laugh, think, learn (a lot) and be moved.
We had immense fun filming with Bonnie & Felicity, two incredible women we adore who you will love watching, this is one not to be missed.
