#16 - The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen

This week we're joined by guest co-host Chris Dinh to discuss the Books & Boba Book Club pick for May 2017, the Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen. Part spy thriller, part meta-fiction, and part social commentary, The Sympathizer is a story about a half-Vietnamese, half-French army captain (and communist double agent) who comes to America as a refugee after the Fall of Saigon.

For additional thoughts and discussion on the monthly pick, visit the Books & Boba Goodreads forums.
