Virtual Fit To Be Lit Book Club Meeting

Jun 5 @ 3:06 am

Come join us for a fun and lively discussion of some of today’s best literary fiction! This month’s selection is The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen:
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.
