Lives of the Family

Lives of the Family

Vintage Canada | September 15, 2014 | 240 pages

In 2011, Denise Chong set out to collect the history of the earliest Chinese settlers in and around Ottawa, who made their homes far from any major Chinatown. Many would open cafes, establishments that once dotted the landscape across the country and were a monument to small-town Canada. This book of overlapping stories explores the trajectory of a universal immigrant experience. Intimate, haunting and powerful, Lives of the Family reveals the immigrant's tenacity in adapting to a new world.
