Description - Wine Girl: A sommelier's tale of making it in the toxic world of fine dining by Victoria James

'Hugely entertaining' Jay Rayner, Observer

'Addictive' Stylist

'James does for wine what Anthony Bourdain did for the high-pressure, low-margin world of professional restaurants, exposing secrets kept from customers' Financial Times

Aged twenty-one, Victoria was named the US's youngest sommelier, working in Michelin-starred restaurants, serving the finest wines.

The groping patrons she learned to handle, but, behind the scenes, the world of high-end dining was a mess of fractious relationships and unacknowledged abuse. It would take hitting rock-bottom for Victoria to find her way back to the industry she adores.

Wine Girl is the memoir of a young woman breaking free from her traumatic childhood. It's the story of overcoming a notoriously misogynistic business, and of the restorative power of a glass of wine with friends.

'You'll raise a glass to James's extraordinary resilience' Sunday Times

'A must-read' Daily Telegraph
