The verb esperar means to wait. It also means to hope.--"The Past Was a Small Notebook, Much Scribbled-Upon", Cora Sir? 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 is as much about hope as it is about waiting. 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.
