2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction

The Sympathizer

This year's Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction is Viet Thanh Nguyen, for his debut novel The Sympathizer. Described as "a profound, startling, and beautifully crafted debut novel," The Sympathizer is the story of a man conflicted between his politics and his loyalties. Set in 1975, the story begins in chaotic Saigon and moves to Los Angeles, where a captain in the Vietnamese army is secretly spying on his fellow armymen and reporting back to the powers that be in the Viet-Cong.  The novel is a spy chronicle, a political tale and a love story all rolled into one.
