By James, Victoria
Exhilarating and inspiring, Wine Girl is the memoir of a young woman breaking free from an abusive and traumatic childhood on her own terms; an ethnography of the glamorous, high-octane, but notoriously toxic restaurant industry; and above all, a love letter to the restorative an...d life-changing effects of good wine and good hospitality.
