Since several pieces of classical literature and one or two contemporary pieces are referenced or quoted in The Rent Collector , I thought it may be of interest if I provide added history on those pieces.

Some I used in their entirety; others, I simply referenced. With one noted exception, all are in the public domain and readily available online. They are listed by their order of appearance. Dancing Monkeys , a short piece of literature I included in its entirety, is attributed to Aesop. If you trust Wikipedia and in this case I do , Aesop was a Greek writer credited with a number of popular fables. Some accounts say he was a slave, others a black Ethiopian. Reamker , again simply referenced, is a Cambodian epic poem known among the Khmer people for its portrayal in dance theatre.

In the Reamker, topics of trust, loyalty, love, and revenge play out in dramatic encounters among princes and giants, monkeys and mermaids, and a forlorn princess.

Moby Dick , by American author Herman Melville, was first published in A shortened version of the translated story is read by Sang Ly, and several lines of dialogue revolve around the plot. Sarann , the story of the Khmer Cinderella, crafted to meet the specific needs of pacing and style for The Rent Collector , was patterned after numerous versions from an array of countries.

If there is an interest, an actual Khmer version of the Cinderella story was documented and told by Dr. Jewell R. Coburn in her book, Angkat: The Cambodian Cinderella.

It was written by Joni Buehner, and is the one work referenced besides those I created that is not in the public domain. It simply fit so well into the story, I asked Joni for permission to use it and she kindly agreed. The final version included in The Rent Collector aptly demonstrates the countless factors a writer must consider when crafting a novel.

Originally, I had Sang Ly read the short story, Long Odds , in its entirety on her bus trip to the province. Fight evil with your knife. Tell your husband, Ki, that he is right.

Though this dump and the people who live there exists, this is a fictional account of Sang Ly, wife of Ki Lim and mother of a perpetually sick baby.

Sang Ly strikes up an unexpected relationship with her ill tempered land lady and as they spend time together there is much more to this land lady than is apparent on the surface. Camron Wright’s writing is beautiful and in itself is enough to keep the reader engaged. When Sang Ly learns a secret about her demanding and unlikable landlady, a relationship between the two women begins to grow. When Sang Ly learns more about her landlady’s life prior to the Khmer Rouge, this once strained relationship between tenant and landlady grows into a touching and powerful connection between two women, with a tragic conclusion.

If you like beautiful writing and touching stories about humanity, this book is for you. When I began reading, I was reading with my head and wasn’t sure that I would enjoy the book. However, by the end, I was reading with my heart And found this book very fulfilling.

Recommend by a dear friend, the greatest gift of all: stories shared. One person found this helpful. It’s a good book, not great, but good. This book is filled with struggle, despair and grinding poverty. It is also full of love, compassion and courage. Sang Li is who I hope to be when I grow up even though I am in my 60s.

I believe everyone should read this book. The message of hope and forbearance is truly that important. I’ve been wanting to read The Rent Collector for a while and was excited that it was our book club choice this month as well.

Once I started reading it, it was hard to put down. Sang Ly and her husband, Ki Lim, are just trying to survive day-to-day by collecting enough recyclables to pay for food and rent. Their young son, Nisay, is ill and Sang Ly is frustrated because he’s fine while on medicine, but gets sick again when it runs out and they don’t have enough money to keep buying medicine for him.

The rent collector, Sopeap Sin, is a mean, drunk woman. When I first read the summary for this book, I was intrigued by the location of the story: the dump. I wondered how that would work and what kind of life someone could have living at the dump.
