Into The Wardrobe

What We Can't Put Down

"Let's say I was born when I came over the George Washington Bridge..."

Stephanie Danler takes the literary world by storm with her first novel Sweetbitter. Written while Danler was a waitress at the Union Square Café and an MFA student at the New School the novel is semi-autobiographical. It is important to note that while Danler and the main character Tess have a lot in common, Tess is still a character and not entirely based on herself. Speaking of Tess, she is the novel’s central focus – a young women who moves from the Midwest to New York City and enters the culinary world. In a coming of age of sorts, Tess learns about food, wine, life and love. A must read for anyone, and everyone, looking for a book you won’t be able to put down.
