The book - an abridged dictionary. I open the cover, discover a library record, the book had not been checked out or checked in. 1974 is stamped clearly on the page. I found it under a hill of stored paperbacks. I must have stolen it. Who the hell would steal a dictionary! Then it comes to me – a young man hungry for words that’s who.
