Sweetbitter
By

Rating
Newly arrived in New York City, twenty-two-year-old Tess lands a job working front of house at a celebrated downtown restaurant. What follows is her education: in champagne and cocaine, love and lust, dive bars and fine dining rooms, as she learns to navigate the chaotic, enchanting, punishing life she has chosen. The story of a young woman's coming-of-age, set against the glitzy, grimy backdrop of New York's most elite restaurants, in Sweetbitter Stephanie Danler deftly conjures the nonstop and high-adrenaline world of the food industry and evokes the infinite possibilities, the unbearable beauty, and the fragility and brutality of being young and adrift.

Reviews

NATIONAL BEST SELLER "Outstanding." --Gabrielle Hamilton, The New York Times Book Review "Vivid and exquisite." --NPR "[A] heady first taste of self-discovery, bitter and salty and sweet." --Entertainment Weekly "Meticulously rendered." --Los Angeles Times "Ravishing. . . . It tantalizes, seduces, satisfies." --O, The Oprah Magazine "Smart, delicious. . . . A sexy, sweaty book of sensory overload." --The Washington Post "[Sweetbitter] is going to make a lot of people hungry." .--The New York Times "A heady mix of youth, love, gastronomic delights and determined self-invention. . . . [Danler] is a writer of prodigious talent." --San Francisco Chronicle "A raw, shucked, pungent, wild love story." --Marie Claire "Sexy, astute. . . . Anyone who's ever tied on an apron will think, 'Finally, someone wrote a book about us.' And nailed it." --People "This dynamite book is filled with the heart-wrenching indignities of self-discovery, and gives a gritty, inside look to the fast-paced, drug-filled, whirlwind scene of restaurant life." --Bon App tit
