„Eine rohe, schnörkellose, beißende, wilde Liebesgeschichte.“ Marie Claire. Eigentlich wollte Tess nicht Kellnerin werden, sondern ihrer provinziellen Heimat entkommen, in die Großstadt eintauchen und endlich herausfinden, was sie will vom Leben. Durch Zufall landet sie in einem edlen New Yorker Restaurant mit seinen ganz eigenen Regeln, Allianzen, Intrigen, Affären und Freundschaften. Um nicht unterzugehen, muss sie hart arbeiten und vor allem schnell lernen, was in der Gourmet-Welt wichtig ist. Und dann verliebt sie sich in den unnahbaren Barmann Jake. Sweetbitter ist ein großer Roman über den Genuss und die Obsession – darüber, dass man manchmal besessen sein muss, um wirklich genießen zu können. „Ein Roman als Sinnesrausch.“ Brigitte Woman.

Newly arrived in New York City, twenty-two-year-old Tess lands a job working front of house at a celebrated downtown restaurant. What follows is her education: in champagne and cocaine, love and lust, dive bars and fine dining rooms, as she learns to navigate the chaotic, enchanting, punishing life she has chosen. The story of a young woman’s coming-of-age, set against the glitzy, grimy backdrop of New York’s most elite restaurants, in Sweetbitter Stephanie Danler deftly conjures the nonstop and high-adrenaline world of the food industry and evokes the infinite possibilities, the unbearable beauty, and the fragility and brutality of being young and adrift.

"This is a novel about the coming-of-age of America and the violent conflicts between races and cultures that mar our history. Gibbons' hero, Reuben, embodies the covert mingling of blood that fueled the hatred and paranoia of the South. Reuben, half Choctaw and half white, loses the only parent he knew when his Choctaw mother dies in 1896. He is taken in by a generous black woman who graces him with his full name, Reuben Saved Sweetbitter, and teaches him to read. Reuben grows up handsome, strong, independent, smart, and adept at navigating the treacherous currents that divide whites, blacks, and reds. But then he falls in love with Martha, the fair-skinned, wild-haired, willful, and sensual daughter of a prominent lawyer. Their forbidden passion is enough to get them killed in this land of virulent racism and the KKK. Clearly, this is an adventure story and a romance, but it's that and much more. Reuben muses that there are "too many worlds," and Gibbons captures the rhythm of each, describing every nuance of attitude, from fear to compassion to cowardliness to courage."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

›Die Idiotin‹ ist ein unvergesslicher Roman, der am Elite-College Harvard spielt - von einer der originellsten Stimmen der amerikanischen Gegenwartsliteratur: Elif Batuman. New Jersey, 1995: Selin, Tochter türkischer Immigranten, jung, hinreißend und ahnungslos, zieht aus, um in Harvard Literatur zu studieren. Die College-Wohnheime sind mit Albert Einstein-Postern und Lavalampen dekoriert, das Internet ist noch jung und die nächtlichen E-Mails, die ihr Ivan, der ungarische Mathestudent, schickt, sind ebenso bezaubernd wie unverständlich. Aber Selin manövriert sich tapfer durch die ersten Stürme der Erwachsenenjahre. Sie reist mit ihrer Freundin Svetlana nach Paris, lernt Russisch und Taekwondo – und dass die Liebe flüchtig ist. Ein Buch über die magische Zeit des Erwachsenwerdens und das Porträt einer jungen Frau, die auszieht, um ihren Platz in der Welt zu suchen – hellwach und feinsinnig erzählt.
