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.

Winner of the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award “Reginald Gibbons’s first novel takes place in east Texas in 1910 during the time of white rule—not by law but by lynch mob. Amid the suffocating racism and fear, half-Choctaw, half-white Reuben Sweetbitter and Martha Clarke, a white woman, fall in love. . . . Reuben and Martha’s love is strong, but, dishearteningly, racism is stronger. Timely in the subject of interracial love, this authentic, richly -detailed novel plumbs sacrifice, fear, and the loss of one’s identity, bringing the -anguish of the two young lovers to life. Highly recommended.”—Library Journal “Far more than a spellbinding love story . . . a novel wide and deep in its understanding. . . . An unforgettable story, a remarkable piece of work.”—Dallas Morning News “I love this novel: it sings, it soars. Simultaneously deft and deep, it brings a lost world back to brilliant light.”—Andrea Barrett “Surprising in every way. . . . The novel’s ending is as strong as its beginning—terrifying and beautiful, a true tour de force.”—Chicago Tribune

Sweet Bitter Spring is a novel of WWII. Leon Walker is a combat soldier of the infamous Quebec Chauds. He fights for the heroics of war. Big Jim Walsh is an engineer with the Corps of Royal Canadian Engineers. He fights to end the horrors of war. The time is mid-April 1945, and Leon and Jim are poised to liberate the Dutch city of Zwolle. What begins as a reconnaissance mission turns into one of the most daring exploits of WWII. Both men are wounded and that's when the real story begins as both men fall in love with the same Red Cross nurse. This is a story of war and love, of redemption and absolution for the liberation children of the Netherlands. It is based on a true story of real events and real people, including the author's own experience. This is a personal tribute to the faith and courage of men and women who experienced that Sweet Bitter Spring of 1945.

One woman. Two men. A war. Twenty-year-old Amelia marries Italo, a man she's never met. To escape an Italy reeling from the Great War, she sails to him in Far North Queensland to farm sugarcane. But before she meets her husband, she's thrown into the path of Fergus, a man who'll mark the rest of her life. Faced with a lack of English and hostility from established cane growers, caught between warring unions and fascists, Amelia's steady hand grows Italo's business to great success, only for old grudges to break into new revenge. She is tested by forces she couldn't foresee and must face her greatest challenge: learning to live again. Sweeping in its outlook, Sweet Bitter Cane is a family saga but also an untold story of migrant women - intelligent, courageous and enduring women who were the backbone of the sugarcane industry and who deserve to be remembered.
