Inauguration Day, 2009

Getting ready for the move to Beijing, I've come to the realization that my frequent change-of-location lifestyle doesn't afford me the luxury of an extensive personal library.
I am throwing out clothes to make way for these books to fit in my bags:
Lu Xun, Selected Works. 4 vols.
Mao Zedong, Selected Works of Mao Tse-Tung. 5 vols.
Everything I own by Jackson MacLow.
My family dictionary.
Everything I own by Georges Bataille.
Let's just call this a poetics.

David,

What do you mean by "family dictionary"? A dictionary passed down in your family? Or a dictionary of words created and defined by your family?

I have both kinds, so I wonder.

It's not that old, but it's the dictionary I took when I moved out of the house. Nazi is listed among the new words.

That's a great dictionary to have, though I wonder if I already have it. It's possible.
