PALAWAN STORY - REVIEWS
 
"Palawan Story is a personal, at times raw, account of life. It works on the intensely personal level as  Kim struggles and obsesses with her fears and her memories."

Critical Acclaim for Caroline Vu's Palawan Story

 

About Palawan Story, the Concordia University First Book Prize jurors wrote:

 

"Caroline Vu shows us what refugees live through – the atrocities, the inhumanity, the fear. She takes us beyond the images we’ve seen on TV and illustrates the consequences of the physical and psychological rupture with one’s … homeland, language and culture. A wonderfully written and vibrant novel." 

 

 

 

"Filled with astute observations and insight, Palawan Story is a thoughtful meditation in story form on issues of memory, truth, identity. The story is rich in a way that doesn't call attention to how rich and clever it is and is as enjoyable and compelling as it is thought provoking." 

Nancy Richler, 2012 Giller Prize finalist and author of The Imposter Bride

 

 

"A fine piece of writing with highly credible atmosphere and fresh, engaging dialogue. This story should interest a lot of people. It had brought alive an important part of world history, and as a treat, had opened up a unique society with a ring of truth." 

Keith Spicer, author and former editor-in-chief of The Ottawa Citizen

 

 

"An interesting story written in simple, unadorned style. The characters' authenticity immediately captivate our attention. Despite its tragic context, this story affirms the possibility of happiness. It is a tale of hope." 

Francisco (Chico) Alvim, poet and twice winner of Brazil's Premio Jabuti de Poesia.
