We will be discussing “The Rent Collector” by Camron Wright. Survival for Ki Lim and Sang Ly is a
daily battle at Stung Meanchey, the largest municipal waste dump in all of Cambodia. They make
their living scavenging recyclables from the trash. Life would be hard enough without the worry for their
chronically ill child, Nisay, and the added expense of medicines that are not working. Just when things
seem worst, Sang Ly learns a secret about the ill-tempered rent collector who comes demanding money–a secret that
sets in motion a tide that will change the life of everyone it sweeps past. The Rent Collector is a story of hope, of one
woman’s journey to save her son and another woman’s chance at redemption. It demonstrates that even in a dump
in Cambodia, perhaps especially in a dump in Cambodia, everyone deserves a second chance.
