Sweetbitter
Sweetbitter: A novel | Stephanie Danler
A lush, raw, thrilling novel of the senses about a year in the life of a uniquely beguiling young woman, set in the wild, alluring world of a famous downtown New York restaurant."Let's say I was born when I came over the George Washington Bridge..." This is how we meet unforgettable Tess, the twenty-two-year-old at the heart of this stunning first novel. Shot from a mundane, provincial past, she's come to New York to look for a life she can't define, except as a burning drive to become someone, to belong somewhere. After she stumbles into a coveted job at a renowned Union Square restaurant, we spend the year with her as she learns the chaotic, punishing, privileged life of a "backwaiter," on duty and off. Her appetites—for food, wine, knowledge, and every kind of experience—are awakened. And she's pulled into the magnetic thrall of two other servers—a handsome bartender she falls hard for, and an older woman she latches onto with an orphan's ardor. These two and their enigmatic connection to each other will prove to be Tess's hardest lesson of all. Sweetbitter is a story of discovery, enchantment, and the power of what remains after disillusionment.From the Hardcover edition.

9 books this June - Most were available from the library and downloaded to the Kindle, so I could read while traveling. My favorites were Kitchen Confidential, Sisters First, & Sweetbitter.

I completely get why some people hate this book, but I really enjoyed it. I loved the fast-paced, cut-throat, and indulgent setting described throughout the book. It was a fascinating read after listening to Kitchen Confidential earlier this month.

My pick for #booked2019 #foodorbeverageonthecover
I know there are a lot of mixed reviews for this one, but I really enjoyed it. The protagonist is a bit whiney, but the writing and atmosphere is lovely and you can‘t beat good writing about food. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I understand why so many readers hate this book, but I really liked it. I loved the gorgeous, sensual descriptions of food & wine. I found it so nostalgic (I worked in a restaurant/wine bar in London for all of my 20s) & I think Danler perfectly captures the experience of the formed ‘family‘, the excesses and lack of self-awareness of youth, the loneliness of big cities, and the obsessions and self-discoveries and mistakes we make as we grow up.

A pretentiously written drama about the highs & lows that go on behind the scenes at an iconic NY restaurant. Tess, a doe eyed transplant to NY finds herself a pawn in the backstabbing game of NY social (sexual) politics. I couldn‘t help thinking I was reading the snarky MFA version of Vanderpump Rules. I didn‘t hate this book but it just seemed like the author was trying so hard to be cutting edge. A pick with reservations (Ha...no pun intended)

JennyM Pretentious is a great word for this book! Glad you enjoyed it (ish), or at least didn‘t hate it xx 5mo
Cinfhen My expectations were SO LOW @JennyM that I was prepared for the worst😆 I‘m curious what this author does next as I feel this was semi autobiographical 😜 5mo
WanderingBookaneer I have to admit it was too pretentious for me. I never watched that show but I remember @BookishMarginalia having it on (perhaps while waiting for Real Housewives) and I had to walk away. Anyway, unlike you, I had no reservations with giving this one a 👎🏻. 5mo

KarenUK @Cinfhen your feelings are spot on I think.... apparently it is VERY semi-autobiographical! 😂... Also, does it make me a bad person that your comparison to Vanderpump Rules makes me think I‘m going to love it even more! ?🤦‍♀️ (edited) 5mo

I liked this book. As a fan of non fiction books about cooking, i kept thinking this was based off of real life while reading it...but its fiction. Wonderfully written. Her obsession with Jake and Simone drove me nuts. The only thing i didnt like was the ending it just didn't sit well with me. Especially what she did to Howard. Just wrong. I gave it 3 stars.

Sensual on every level. This book swallowed me. The prose was always deliberate, fueled by both the author‘s intellectual curiosity and also a more bold and primal reverence for fully inhabiting the senses. We see Tess, age 22 in the cruel and gorgeous process of discovery. Read it twice and found it take on a new, chilling vibration in the post #MeToo reading.

I can definitely see why this has such mixed reviews - there is a pretentiousness about both the characters and the writing - but I still found it incredibly absorbing. I do wish I hadn't watched the short first season of the television adaptation first because I kept trying to match events to the show, which happens in a fairly different order, and had images for the characters already in my head.

I don‘t think I cry reading a book, at least I don‘t remember doing so when reading a sad book. Now, you didn‘t say the book had to be sad, right? That being said, if I was going to cry over a book this one, along with Mrs. Fletcher would‘ve made me cry because I wanted them to end so badly. These people needed to be put out of their misery. 😬😢I‘m only half joking here.

Many times I almost walked away from this book, frustrated as other readers were with its unlikable characters and air of pretension. I have never worked as a waitress, but I‘d imagine some of what went on in this book is more realistic than fiction. It‘s long been stated that restaurants are rather incestuous places to work. Still, backdrop aside, this is ultimately a hard knock coming of age story- one that so far matches its TV counterpart.

2 stars for the plot, 3 for the writing and 4 for the descriptions of food and wine. The meandering storyline left me unimpressed, but it was lovely to read a fictional account of working in one of my very favorite restaurants, warts and all. The restaurant industry, especially in NYC, is a bit of an obsession for me (my dad is a restaurateur) so I‘ll read whatever I can about it.

I finally went back this book after speed-dating it last year. It's a good read for the self-contained universe of a restaurant staff, for the strangeness of people who love New York even while avoiding the rats and cockroaches. The narrator is young, naive, obsessive...and pretty unlikeable. But she has to have some of those characteristics to possess the gumption to go on this journey. (But how much coke can a person do, exactly?)

Ruthiella I think it is real. When young (20s) the body can handle a lot of drugs and drinking and this does catch up with her in the book eventually. I really liked this book even though it had aspects that would normally put me off. 1y

Sweetbitter recently premiered on STARZ. It's about a woman fresh out of college leaving her life in small town Ohio to move to the Big Apple where she gets a job as a waitress. I wanted a light, quick read. Although, it was both of those things, I didn't enjoy this book as I had hoped. A year in the life of Tess wasn't very interesting because I didn't share the same fascination as she did for Simone and Jake. There also wasn't much of a plot.
