Event description
Pulitzer prize winning author Viet Thanh Nguyen discusses his new novel, The Committed.

About this Event

Nguyen’s debut, The Sympathizer, was widely praised by critics as both a gripping spy thriller and literary novel of ideas, earning him comparisons with John Le Carré and Graham Greene, and won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

The Sympathizer tells the story of an unnamed half-Vietnamese, half-French communist spy living a double life in Los Angeles. In its sequel, The Committed, he has arrived in 1980s Paris as a refugee. Reunited with his blood brother, he turns to drug dealing while at the same time falling in with a group of left-wing intellectuals and politicians in the French capital. Crossing several countries and continents, the novels examine the legacy of the Vietnam war and the politics of displacement

Join us to hear one of America’s most highly regarded writers discuss his new work. Nguyen will be in conversation with Nikesh Shukla, editor of The Good Immigrant and author of Brown Baby.
