WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE FOR FICTION 2016 WINNER OF THE EDGAR AWARD FOR BEST FIRST NOVEL 2016 WINNER OF THE CARNEGIE MEDAL FOR EXCELLENCE IN FICTION 2016 It is April 1975, and Saigon is in chaos. At his villa, a general of the South Vietnamese army is drinking whiskey and, with the help of his trusted captain, drawing up a list of those who will be given passage aboard the last flights out of the country. The general and his compatriots start a new life in Los Angeles, unaware that one among their number, the captain is secretly observing and reporting on the group to a higher-up in the Viet Cong. The Sympathizer is the story of this captain: a man brought up by an absent French father and a poor Vietnamese mother, a man who went to university in America but returned to Vietnam to fight for the Communist cause. A gripping spy story, an astute exploration of extreme politics and a moving love story, The Sympathizer explores a life between two worlds and examines the legacy of the Vietnam War in literature, film and the wars we fight today.

Review:

'[A] remarkable debut ... fills a void in literature, giving voice to the previously voiceless ... An absurdist tour de force that might have been written by a Kafka or Genet.' Author: The New York Times Book Review

'A fierce novel written in a refreshingly high style and charged with intelligent rage.' Author: The Financial Times

'This impressive debut contains a Whitman-like multiplicity ... A bold, artful and globally minded reimagining of the Vietnam war ...' Author: The Guardian

Book Description:

A profound, startling, and beautifully crafted debut novel, The Sympathizer is the story of a man of two minds, offering a unique perspective on the Vietnam war.
