If you could sum up The Lost Language of Cranes in three words, what would they be?
Hopeful, Desperate, Grey. Hopeful because at the end there's a thin veil of hope for all the characters. Desperate because fear is at the basis of many of the relationship in the novel. Grey because that's the color that comes to my mind if I think about the characters, the setting, the plot.
What did you like best about this story?
This is a bildungsroman for a young gay man and, at the same time, for a middle-aged man. They both have their path to follow and in the end they are on the same road.
Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
The Windup Girl. He's a very good performer. With that book I followed along with the text and his work was very, very good.
If you could take any character from The Lost Language of Cranes out to dinner, who would it be and why?
Jerene, of course. :-)
Any additional comments?
For a gay man, this is a must, Like "Maurice" by Forster. Even if you are not gay, there's plenty about relationships that makes the few hours spent reading the book well spent.

Well written, the characters are true and come into your life with real meaning. It has been several months since I read this book but I think about it often, the character stay with you it's a great book with the feelings and gives you a lot to think about
