Welcome to the revolution, ladies. There’s a reason that NPR, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Oprah, and so many others named Lessons in Chemistry a Best Book of the Year. It’s just so delightful, so exhilarating.
Novelist Bonnie Garmus takes us back to the early 1960’s, where the siren call for housewives was the hit cooking show, Supper at Six. Supper at Six was a sacred hour for stay at home women–children didn’t dare to disturb their mothers. Why? Our heroine, a brilliant chemist, finds herself a reluctant, increasingly stubborn host on the hit cooking show. She dares to challenge — and elevate –American women one tablespoon at a time. Notwithstanding the misogyny our heroine fights to stay afloat, Lessons in Chemistry is so funny, and so satisfying. Bonnie Garmus certainly knows how to bond with her audience. (Apologies to scientists everywhere.)
Diane Arieff is a writer, editor, and educator living in Los Angeles. Formerly the arts editor for The Jewish Journal, she is a professor in the English department at Santa Monica College, where she teaches creative writing.
