The Rent Collector

91sou3vtflA former colleague of mine recommended The Rent Collector by Camron Wright to me and I am so glad she did. It was a wonderful read, much like behind the beautiful forevers. The Rent Collector follows the life of Sang Ly and her husband who live in a Cambodian dump with their very ill son, Nisay. Sang Ly befriends the rent collector, who teaches her to read. And, in the surprise friendship, all kinds of unexpected things happen. While terribly depressing, the redemption and potential for change that are realized by the end, make it a superb read.
