WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A REFUGEE
The Committed is Viet Thanh Nguyen’s much-anticipated follow-up to the Pulitzer Prize-winning, The Sympathizer. It shows the United States of America and France through the eyes of a Vietnamese refugee. He is joined by an award-winning Vietnamese author, Nguyen Phan Que Mai, to discuss the Vietnam War’s narrative, the meaning of being a refugee, and ways to deal with displacement.
