Conoce a Elizabeth Zott: "una talentosa química investigadora, absurdamente segura de sí misma e inmune a las convenciones sociales" (The Washington Post) en California de los años 60, cuya carrera toma un desvío cuando se convierte en la inesperada estrella de un querido programa de cocina en televisión. • DISPONIBLE EN APPLE TV+

Esta novela es "irresistible, satisfactoria y llena de energía" (The New York Times Book Review) y "ingeniosa, a veces hilarante... el Catch-22 del feminismo temprano" (Stephen King, vía Twitter).

UNO DE LOS MEJORES LIBROS DEL AÑO: The New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, Oprah Daily, Entertainment Weekly, Newsweek

 
Para Elizabeth Zott, la cocina es química y la química es vida. Conoce a esta mujer inconformista e irresistible y atrévete a cambiar el mundo.
 
Elizabeth Zott es madre soltera y renuente estrella del programa de cocina de televisión más seguido de Estados Unidos. El enfoque inusual de Elizabeth para cocinar, combinar una cucharada de ácido acético con una pizca de cloruro de sodio, resulta revolucionario. Sin embargo, a medida que su éxito aumenta lo hacen también sus enemigos, porque Elizabeth no sólo está enseñando a las mujeres a cocinar sino también desafiándolas a alterar el orden establecido.
 
Lecciones de química es una novela original y adictiva que desentraña de manera inteligente y entretenida la espinosa cuestión de la igualdad de género, la necesidad de ser uno mismo y de por qué debemos negarnos a aceptar las limitaciones de los demás y tratar de imponer las nuestras.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • GMA BOOK CLUB PICK • Meet Elizabeth Zott: “a gifted research chemist, absurdly self-assured and immune to social convention” (The Washington Post) in 1960s California whose career takes a detour when she becomes the unlikely star of a beloved TV cooking show. • STREAM ON APPLE TV+

This novel is “irresistible, satisfying and full of fuel” (The New York Times Book Review) and “witty, sometimes hilarious...the Catch-22 of early feminism” (Stephen King, via Twitter).

A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR: The New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, Oprah Daily, Entertainment Weekly, Newsweek


Meet Elizabeth Zott: a “formidable, unapologetic and inspiring” (
PARADE) scientist in 1960s California whose career takes a detour when she becomes the unlikely star of a beloved TV cooking show in this novel that is “irresistible, satisfying and full of fuel. It reminds you that change takes time and always requires heat” (The New York Times Book Review).
 
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 as an average woman. But it’s the early 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute takes 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. 

But like science, life is unpredictable. Which is why a few years later Elizabeth Zott finds herself not only a single mother, but the reluctant star of America’s most beloved cooking show Supper at Six. Elizabeth’s unusual approach to cooking (“combine one tablespoon acetic acid with a pinch of sodium chloride”) proves revolutionary. But as her following grows, not everyone is happy. Because as it turns out, Elizabeth Zott isn’t just teaching women to cook. She’s daring them to change the status quo.
 
Laugh-out-loud funny, shrewdly observant, and studded with a dazzling cast of supporting characters, Lessons in Chemistry is as original and vibrant as its protagonist.
