Cool addition to any home! Unique present! "Ghetto" is printed in high quality on 1930's French dictionary.. "Ghetto" will be printed on a page similar to the one in this listing, there might be few small differences from the pages - this brings a special uniqueness. The age of the dictionary gives a warm and authentic feel to the print.
This is a semi-long book, and I might recommend having a Spanish to English dictionary handy. That being said, I finished this book in two days, I may have forgotten to eat, sleep, or go to work. This story brings together the life of one sad family in an unforgettable way. In some ways I wish it (the book) never ended.
