Summary
Author Viet Thanh Nguyen's debut novel The Sympathizer won both the Pulitzer Prize and the Carnegie Medal, among other accolades; readers hungry for more will appreciate the eight stories collected here, written before The Sympathizer was published. While the stories, mostly set in the Vietnamese community in California, represent Vietnamese refugee experiences in the US, the topics they explore -- relationships, grief, the desire for fulfillment -- speak to the human experience. Check them out if you're interested in sympathetic characters, cultural dislocation, or the experiences of refugees. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
