Book - The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen

DescriptionJoin us as we discuss the 2016 Pulitzer Prize winning novel, a sweeping epic of love and betrayal. 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. Nguyen has written a blistering exploration of identity and America, a gripping espionage novel, and a powerful story of love and friendship.
