    We have ordered and been using this book for my high school junior English class. It is a perfect fit to our effort to cover various global issue themes within the course. I’m wondering if I can also purchase an audio recording of the book for my learners who need additional reading support. Please advise. Thank you!

    Hello Mr Nguyen,
    Have just finished reading The Sympathizer and wish to thank you from the bottom of my white middle class middle aged american heart for delivering such a powerful compelling and much overdue Vietnamese perspective on the war and american culture. A belated congratulation on your Pulitzer Prize award. I feel a bit silly adding my appreciation to that pinacle a literary success but none the less I am compelled to express my gratitude given how uncommon it is to find writing so raw and honest and intelligent. I hope your writing can move the world closer to a clearer and more nuanced understanding of history and the human experience. I can at least say you have helped me along the way. Cheers
