About this title


This story follows three generations of a Vietnamese family as they struggle through major events of the 20th century. From the War of Independence against the French colonial power to the Vietnam War, the novel depicts a family's resilience in the face of tragedy, as told through the voice of a young girl attempting to understand family scandals within an historical context. At the novel's core is the death from AIDS in the early 1980s of the narrator's half French, half Vietnamese cousin Daniel, a beautiful rebel who is stricken down following a summer escapade in Provincetown. His family of three generations of physicians cannot bear to call the disease by its true name. Daniel dies alone in his Montreal hospital room.

Born in Vietnam, Caroline Vu-Nguyen left her native country at the age of twelve. She now works as a family physician at a community health centre in Montreal. That Summer in Provincetown is her second novel. Her first novel, Palawan Story, was shortlisted for a QWF fiction award
