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 andoff. Her appetitesfor food, wine, knowledge, and every kind of experienceare awakened. And she's pulled into the magnetic thrall of two other serversa 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. Sweetbitteris a story of discovery, enchantment, and the power of what remains after disillusionment.From the Hardcover edition.

I...am still mad at this book. It was promoted like crazy so I picked it up (I should‘ve known better). No one in this book acts like any person with a functioning brain would. The main character is in a constant state of cluelessness leading to her being shocked by the most obvious and benign things. 0/10

Two and a half stars. Ground breaking read? It is not. It's a decent read about a twenty-something in the New York restaurant world--- a lot of fucked up relationships with co-workers and a lot of drugs. I've read better books, and I've read worse. This one's pretty middle-of- the-road.

I need a light read after finishing The Labyrinth of Spirits, and this seems like it will fit the bill.
Book #109 for 2019!

I saw a lot of mixed reviews for this one so I wasn‘t sure what to expect. I actually enjoyed the story. My first job was in a restaurant so I liked the restaurant setting and I thought the writing was pretty good. The cable series isn‘t bad, either. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really loved parts of this book. Anyone that has ever waited tables or worked in a restaurant will relate to so much of this book. But...THE DIALOGUE! It was terrible! I know the author was trying to be literary, but it did not work for me. 👎🙄🤦‍♀️

Cinfhen Ha!!! This book was the literary version of Vanderpump Rules 😉🍷🍷🍷 3mo

#LilithJuly

(Day 25 - #BrassInPocket)

*Brass in one‘s pocket is money, and the brass Chrissie Hynde is referring to in the accompanying video is the change a waitperson receives in tips. (Hynde actually worked as a waitperson in Akron before her move to London.) This title prompt made me think of “Sweetbitter,” a tale about a waitperson in New York just trying to find acceptance, love, and maybe even a little “brass in [her] pocket.”

Cinfhen Awesome collage 💕I read this book earlier this year and thought it was very accurate 👌🏽 4mo
gradcat @Cinfhen Thanks so much for your very kind words. Yes, it‘s pretty accurate in a number of ways, but it‘s funny—at least I find it funny strange—that the reviews run the gamut...and don‘t get me started on the television adaptation. 😏 4mo
Cinfhen I haven‘t seen the series but I likened my reading to the Bravo series Vanderpump Rules 🤪 4mo

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 9mo
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 😜 9mo
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 👎🏻. 9mo

gradcat I watched that show one time, on the recommendation of a friend—not for me. Pretentious & narcissistic! 9mo
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) 9mo

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.

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.
