Résumé  :

Waiting for John is the tale of the impact of the arrival of US material goods in the middle of the 20th century on an isolated island population. If you’ve never seen a plane and then are suddenly confronted with one, how can one not cry “miracle”? Contact between the Vanuatu natives and the US Army was the start of the cargo cult in which canned goods are considered gifts from the gods and the American GI John Frum became the mythical Prophet of a religion of abundance. Will the Prophet ever return?
