Bonnie Garmus with Isy Suttie

This week on the Penguin Podcast, Isy Suttie is joined by debut novelist Bonnie Garmus.

She speaks to Isy about her debut novel, Lessons in Chemistry, and also discusses her reluctance to change any keyboard she's grown used to, often still using it when the key have come loose, her passion for swimming, what she learnt as a copywriter, the usefulness of lies in society, and how she wrote her first short story when she was five years old.
