Abstract:

"Waiting chronicles the remarkable dignity of a people in a truly desperate situation. The people of the town of Alek have run out of food. The grain crop has been consumed, and enemies have stolen their livestock. Desperate, the people appeal for hunger relief. One hundred and forty five tons of grain are air-dropped into Alek, but there is a problem: without enough relief workers to distribute the food properly, there might be a riot. For a week, as the food sits on the ground, everyone, the starving Dinkas, and the well-fed aid workers, waits for relief"--Container.
