Tres Gatos Book Club: The Sympathizer

On January 7th, join us at Tres Gatos to discuss, debate and drink around Viet Thanh Nguyen’s The Sympathizer, winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize! The book is currently on sale at Tres Gatos!

"The Sympathizer is the breakthrough novel of the year. 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."

See you there!
