An Alphabetical Love Story

I had a lot of fun producing this video for David Levithan’s The Lover’s Dictionary. And thanks to the good Mr. Scott Ordway for providing the score.

 

I’m pretty excited about the book itself, too. Last January, FSG published the (very fucking) excellent Lost Books of the Odyssey, and this January we have another experimental novel by a young writer. The dictionary entry conceit is cute at first, then quite moving, and, ultimately, as good a lens as any other for looking closely at a relationship. It also helps that Levithan’s written several books already and is quite adept at conveying intimacy and pain with incredible precision.
