I was thrilled to speak to Bonnie Garmus about her incredible book Lessons in Chemistry.
Bonnie is a talented copywriter and creative director who has worked across many fields, including technology, medicine, and education. Her debut novel, Lessons in Chemistry, is a No.1 Sunday Times and No. 1 New York Times bestseller, and it’s no wonder why! This book is a powerful and totally joyous read, featuring an unconventional female scientist with a game plan to change the world. It’s smart, funny, and an all-around great read.
Lessons in Chemistry has won numerous accolades, including the Goodreads Choice Award for Best Debut Novel, and was shortlisted for the Waterstones Debut Fiction Prize. It was even voted Hay Festival Book of the Year by readers. With translations in over 35 languages, it’s no surprise that it’s being adapted as an Apple TV series starring Brie Larson!
