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 Appétit

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.
