The Sympathizer Overview

The Sympathizer, by Viet Thanh Nguyen, is the story of a man trapped between two worlds at every turn – East versus West, Oriental versus Occidental, and spy versus friend. Nguyen deftly traverses the thin line of duality through the unnamed protagonist in this story of a man immersed in the struggles he encounters following the fall of Saigon, his flight to America, and eventual return to Vietnam.
