Sweetbitter is a stunning debut novel, one that seems destined to help define a generation.
— Jay McInerney, author of Bright Lights, Big City
Gorgeous, sensual prose and a page-turning plot line that casts a spell down to the very last sentence of the final page...tantalizing in all the right ways.
— Refinery29
An unpretentious, truth-dealing novel. Ms. Danler is a sensitive observer… and gifted commenter on many things. Sweetbitter is going to make a lot of people hungry.
— Dwight Garner, The New York Times
