This month's book is
'The Sympathizer' by Viet Thanh Nguyen.
The Sympathizer is thewinner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, as well as seven other awards. With the pace and suspense of a thriller and prose that has been compared to Graham Greene and Saul Bellow, The Sympathizer is 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.
The Sympathizer is a blistering exploration of identity and America, a gripping espionage novel, and a powerful story of love and friendship.
This meeting will be held at 11:00 am
at DIESEL, A Bookstore in Del Mar.
Masks are required.
