The Lost Language of Cranes

paperback    ISBN 13: 9781408854587 | ISBN 10: 1408854589

Owen and Rose are facing serious challenges to their married life of routine and monotony as New York City grows and changes around them. They spend most Sundays apart; while Rose buries herself in crosswords and newspapers, Owen visits gay porn theaters. But when they discover they may lose their apartment and their son, prompted by his new relationship, reveals his homosexuality, their lives cannot continue as they were. Owen and Rose are forced to confront not only their son's revelation but also Owen's latent homosexuality.
 
Poignant and lingering, this is a tale of love and relationships, secrets and unspoken desires.
