Cover image: Sympathizer

April 5 & 18, 2018. The Sympathizer: A Novel by Viet Thanh Nguyen.
Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction

A profound, startling, and beautifully crafted debut novel, this is the story of a man of two minds, someone whose political beliefs clash with his individual loyalties. In dialogue with but diametrically opposed to the narratives of the Vietnam War that have preceded it, this novel offers an important and unfamiliar new perspective on the war: that of a conflicted communist sympathizer.


An npr interview with the author, here.

See our Bookclub page for all kinds of additional information about the book and the author.

Books have been chosen for the first part of 2018. Check the Bookclub page for the list of great titles.
