QUOTATIONS

autonomy, n.
“I want my books to have their own shelves,” yuu said, and that’s how I knew it would be okay to live together.

ineffable, adj.
These words will ultimately end up being the barest of reflections, devoid of the sensations words cannot convey. Trying to write about love is ultimately like trying to have a dictionary represent life. No matter how many words there are, there will never be enough.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT

A modern love story told through a series of dictionary-style entries is a sequence of intimate windows into the large and small events that shape the course of a romantic relationship. [Goodreads]
