The Lover’s Dictionary on KCRW’s Bookworm

YA author, David Levithan, made his adult fiction debut with The Lover's Dictionary, an unconventional narrative about a modern relationship told through emotionally rich dictionary entries such as this: 

indelibleadj.  That first night, you took your finger and pointed to the top of my head, then traced a line between my eyes, down my nose, over my lips, down my neck, to the center of my chest. It was so surprising, I knew I would never mimic it. That one gesture would be yours forever.

Last week, David had an interview with Michael Silverblatt on KCRW's Bookworm! Grab your headphones to hear David read a few excerpts and discuss his thoughts on The Lover's Dictionary. Listen below or click here.
