  • The Refugees, by Viet Thanh Nguyen
  • Details
  • Viet Thanh Nguyen's "The Sympathizer" was one of the most widely and highly praised novels of 2015, the winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Nguyen's next fiction book, "The Refugees," is a collection of perfectly formed stories written over a period of twenty years, exploring questions of immigration, identity, love, and family.

    With the coruscating gaze that informed The Sympathizer, in "The Refugees" Viet Thanh Nguyen gives voice to lives led between two worlds -- the adopted homeland and the country of birth -- and his stories are a captivating testament to the dreams and hardships of immigration. The second piece of fiction by a major new voice in American letters, "The Refugees" is a beautifully written and sharply observed book about the aspirations of those who leave one country for another, and the relationships and desires for self-fulfillment that define our lives.
