The Symphathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen

Dublin Core

Description

A bemusedly yet deliberately written Vietnamese-American novel emphasizing the theme of duality through love and betrayal, Occident yet Oriental identities, and the importance or lack thereof of freedom. It gives a new perspective of what we take for granted as a right in America and sheds light on the meaning of nothing.

"I enjoyed reading this because of how deep Nguyen's writing style is and how he provides a fresh point of view into post-Vietnam War America." (Zachariah Lee, C’19)
