"Brilliantly written... Sweetbitter is the Kitchen Confidential of our time."
--Gabrielle Hamilton, author of Blood, Bones & Butter and Prune, New York Times Book Review
--People (book of the week) "An unpretentious, truth-dealing novel... about hunger of every variety. Ms. Danler is a sensitive observer... and gifted commenter on many things. Sweetbitter is going to make a lot of people hungry."
--Dwight Garner, New York Times ..". perfectly captures the raw possibility of a young woman's first year in New York, opening up to a whole new world of wine, food, love and heartbreak."
--Mackenzie Dawson, New York Post ..".a raw, shucked, pungent, wild love story."
--Marie Claire "Danler... quickly draws you into the sparkling surfaces and the shadowy underbelly of the city... [Tess's] insatiable hunger for tactile, sensual satisfaction dares you to tag along. The journey is high-minded and dirty, beastly and bountiful."
"Danler's ravishing debut is like inhabiting the heady after-midnight hours of a city drunk on its own charms... [her] descriptions of food and drink go beyond mouth-watering, verging on orgasmic... a first novel [that] tantalizes, seduces, satisfies."
--Leigh Haber, O Magazine

Despite the lack of plot and no likeable characters, it was so engrossing - about work in a fast paced upmarket New York restaurant. And the writing is magnificent - so poetic. Food and lust and drugs and growth.
I loved it - apart from the disability slurs throughout. Writers have access to an enormous vocabulary, and Stephanie Danler seems talented enough to be able to select words that don't harm disabled people.
It's been adapted for a TV series which is starting on Stan soon. Looking forward to that.
