The winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, compared by critics to
the works of Graham Greene, Denis Johnson, and George Orwell,The
Sympathizer is a blistering exploration of identity, politics, and America,
wrought in electric prose. The narrator, a Vietnamese army captain, is a
man of divided loyalties, a half-French, half-Vietnamese communist sleeper
agent in America after the end of the Vietnam War. A powerful story of love
and friendship, and a gripping espionage novel,The Sympathizer examines the
legacy of the Vietnam War in literature, film, and the wars we fight today.
