David Levithan’s book is beautiful — buy it immediately
Rarely do I read a book and think: God, I wish I had written that. It’s hard to be unique sometimes when you’re talking about love. We’ve all been through painful breakups, we’ve all fallen head over heels and most of us have fallen in love at first sight. But David Levithan has managed to do something radical: he chronicled his current relationship using (somewhat) obscure words in his new book, The Lover’s Dictionary. He readily admits that he isn’t quite certain where, how or when, exactly, he knew it was love, but he knows how betrayed he felt when his partner cheated on him, how unthinkable it seemed. I feel like it’s my duty to repost some of the Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist author’s feelings here — because I’ve been where he’s been, I’ve felt what he’s felt…and so have you.
