Rowboat Book Club Book #56

Happy August Book Clubbers. This month we are going to read Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler.

Sweetbitter is the most delicious (sorry!) summer read. A former server at Union Square Cafe and Buvette, debut novelist Stephanie Danler writes sumptuously about her heroine’s education in food and wine as she trains and works at a tony New York restaurant. But you don’t need to be a foodie to love Sweetbitter because it’s also a heartfelt novel about being a newcomer in a new city, about the dangers of being young and lonely and drunk and in love in New York. It’s a grasping glimpse what happens behind the scenes where the rich people dine, but it’s more sensual and poignant than you might expect.
