The Lover's Dictionaryby David Levithan
Synopses & Reviews
How does one talk about love? Is it even possible to describe something at once utterly mundane and wholly transcendent, that has the power to consume our lives completely, while making us feel part of something infinitely larger than ourselves? Taking a unique approach to this age-old problem, the nameless narrator of David Levithans The Lovers Dictionary constructs the story of a relationship as a dictionary. Through these sharp entries, he provides an intimate window into the great events and quotidian trifles of coupledom, giving us an indelible and deeply moving portrait of love in our time.
When Ben?s girlfriend, Marly, dies, he feels his life is over. What could possibly matter now when Marly is gone? So when Valentine?s Day approaches, it makes sense that this day that was once so meaningful to Ben leaves him feeling bitter and hollow. But then Marly shows up?or at least her ghost does?along with three others spirits. Now Ben must take a painful journey through Valentine?s Days past, present, and future, and what he discovers will change him forever.
