At times fantastically poignant, at times cringey: overall, Danler pierces the core of being a hot mess young adult living in New York City. Though I can’t relate to working in the service industry, the descriptions of food and booze are mouthwatering and informative- almost makes me want to get into wine.
3.5 out of 5 stars: Beautiful writing, I so enjoyed the ride. But (as a former hot mess of a young adult living in New York City) I found the main character a bit tiresome. Not that I’ve got self-awareness in spades…
