The Lover's Dictionary, by David Levithan

"Love the cataloger; hate the catalog" magnet

UPDATE: the subject heading at WorldCat included "man-woman relationships" this morning. That's gone now, and it's just "Couples--fiction." Hooray! via Catalogablog

when we got the book, the copy cataloging said, "The lover's dictionary
Levithan, David.

Subject term Man-woman relationships--Fiction.
Subject term Couples--Fiction.
Subject term Vocabulary--Fiction.
Genre index term Love stories."

I called a library that has a copy, but was told there was no CIP printed in it. So the publisher didn't do it. Now your battle is to get all 800 libraries that own it to change their records.
