1:30 to 3:30 p.m. 32 West Main Street, Waynesboro, PA 17268. All readers are invited to join the book club as they discuss the bestseller The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen. The winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction (as well as six other awards), the book has been described as a sweeping epic of love and betrayal, with the pace and suspense of a thriller and prose that has been compared to Graham Greene and Saul Bellow. 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.
