Viet Thanh Nguyen Wins Fiction Pulitzer Prize For Debut Novel

Book2Book Tuesday 19 Apr 2016

Viet Thanh Nguyen took the Pulitzer Prize in fiction Monday for his debut novel, "The Sympathizer," published by Grove Press. Nguyen, a professor at the USC, is one of the L.A. Times' 10 critics at large.
The Pulitzer committee lauded "The Sympathizer" as "a layered immigrant tale told in the wry, confessional voice of a 'man of two minds' — and two countries, Vietnam and the United States."
