Waiting: An Anthology
University of Alberta Press
This fabulous collection of essays and poems contains some of Canada’s most renowned writers. My essay, “We Come and We Go,” which looks at waiting at home as a military spouse during a deployment, was published in this book.
From the Publisher:
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.
