The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen

Join us for a discussion of The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen, 2016 Pulizter Prize Winner

The winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, as well as five other awards, The Sympathizer is a sweeping epic of love and betrayal with the pace and suspense of a thriller. The narrator, a communist double agent, is a “man of two minds,” a half-French, half-Vietnamese army captain who arranges to come to America after the Fall of Saigon, and while building a new life with other Vietnamese refugees in Los Angeles is secretly reporting back to his communist superiors in Vietnam. The Sympathizer is a blistering exploration of identity and America, a gripping espionage novel, and a powerful story of love and friendship.
