Winter Break Reading! "The Sympathizer"
by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Pulitzer Prize winning author, Viet Nguyen, will be at Cal Poly as a keynote speaker for the "Inclusion Starts with Me: Define American" Teach-In on January 25th 4-6PM in the Chumash Auditorium. Join us in reading his debut novel, "The Sympathizer," which depicts the anonymous narrator, a North Vietnamese mole in the South Vietnamese army, who stays embedded in a South Vietnamese community in exile in the United States. The dual identity of the narrator, as a mole and immigrant, and the Americanization of the Vietnam War in international literature are central themes in the novel. The novel was published 40 years to the month after the fall of Saigon, which is the initial scene of the book.
