a new book we like: The Lover's Dictionary

The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan is a short, sweet, and creatively narrated novel of love and its aftermath.

If there's one subject for which our vocabularies so often feel insufficient, it is also perhaps the most popular subject for artistic expression. The nameless narrator of this book has constructed the story of his relationship as a dictionary. Through these short entries, he provides an intimate window into the greatest events and the most trifling details of being within a couple.

The Lover's Dictionary is funny and fun and heartbreaking.

Green Apple got to ask author David Levithan a few questions. Check out his answers below. Oh, and we have a handful of signed copies for the first customers who hightail it in here!
