I, too, have seen this in assorted places but once Sara brought it home from the library I chose to read it. Took about an hour and a quarter maybe.

Beginning with "aberrant, adj." and ending with "zenith, n.," it charts the course of a relationship through the alphabetic conceit of a dictionary.

My favorites were "punctuate, n.," "rest, v. and n.," and "sacrosanct, adj."

I must admit, I was let down by the ending somewhat. I could see it coming but wanted it to end on the other cusp of the arc.

Anyway, quick read and if you are a 'wordie,' as many of us are, then you may enjoy it.
