Dubray Staff Recommened Read......
It’s early 1960s America and Elizabeth Zott insists that she
doesn’t believe in the institution of marriage – not even to her
soulmate, fellow scientist Calvin Evans. Ostracised from her
beloved lab, she finds fame as a TV cook, dishing up whip smart
and canny advice to her devoted female viewers. Elizabeth is an
iconic new heroine: an intelligent, independent feminist and
an admirable, progressive parent. Lessons in Chemistry is the
funny, poignant page-turner you’ve been waiting for.
Recommended by Aoife Roantree, Dubray Grafton St.
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.
