Praise

“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

Lessons in Chemistry is a breath of fresh air—a witty, propulsive, and refreshingly hopeful novel populated with singular characters. This book is an utter delight—wry, warm, and compulsively readable.”
Claire Lombardo, author of The Most Fun We Ever Had

“On par with Beth Harmon of The Queen’s Gambit, Elizabeth Zott swept me away with her intellect, honesty, and unapologetic selfhood. Lessons in Chemistry is a story for all the smart girls who refuse to dumb themselves down despite a culture that demands otherwise. Though a creation of the 50s & 60s, Zott is a feminist icon for our time.”
Rachel Yoder, author of Nightbitch

“I loved it and am devastated to have finished it.”
Nigella Lawson, author of Cook, Eat, Repeat

“[An] energetic debut…A more adorable plea for rationalism and gender equality would be hard to find.” 
Kirkus (starred review)
