The verb ‘esperar’ means to wait. It also means to hope. —Cora Siré
Waiting, that most human of experiences, saturates all of our lives. We spend part of each day waiting—for birth, death, appointments, acceptance, forgiveness, redemption. This collection of thirty-two personal essays embraces both widely-shared and surprising interpretations of the theme, which is as much about hope as it is about waiting. The contributors play with language that ranges from lush and complex to spare and subtle. Featuring literary voices from the renowned to the emerging, this anthology of contemporary creative nonfiction will resonate with anyone who has ever had to wait.
