“True stories that have the resonance and substance of fiction.” Toronto Star
“Lives of the Family… show[s] people embroiled in the ordinary miracle of living their own lives.” National Post
“It is easy to imagine so many of these stories slipping into the stuff-of-novels” Even when presenting almost overwhelmingly sad stories, Denise Chong presents her material with delicacy – and, often, beauty.” http://www.buriedinprint.com/?p=
The creation of this website was made possible in part by a grant from Citizenship and Immigration Canada, under its Community Historical Recognition Program (CHRP), to the Ottawa Chinese Community Service Centre (381 Kent St., Suite 4004, Ottawa K2P 2A8 (613) 235-4875), a non-profit, non-partisan, community-based organization committed to advancing the social and economic integration and participation of newcomers, immigrants and refugees. The website is one of several CHRP projects showcased on Chinese-Canadian Stories, a website created by the University of British Columbia.
