the sympathizer-new
A Best Book of the Year: Library Journal, Publishers Weekly,, and Kirkus Reviews

“Magisterial. The Sympathizer is destined to become a classic and redefine the way we think about the Vietnam War.”

–T. C. BOYLE, author of T.C. Boyle Stories
“A magnificent feat of storytelling. The Sympathizer is a novel of literary, historical, and political importance.”

–MAXINE HONG KINGSTON, author of The Fifth Book of Peace
“A new classic of war fiction...a cerebral thriller...Nguyen plumbs the loneliness of human life, the costs of fraternity and the tragic limits of our sympathy.”

–RON CHARLES, The Washington Post
“Compares favorably with masters like Conrad, Greene and le Carré absurdist tour de force that might have been written by a Kafka or Genet.”

–PHILIP CAPUTO, New York Times Book Review
