The Refugees by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Nguyen’s debut novel, The Sympathizers, won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for fiction. His follow-up collection of stories is well-timed to the current political conversation, though he’s spent the last 20 years writing it. The tales follow Vietnamese immigrants, forced to move from Saigon to California at the end of the war in Vietnam, as they work to rebuild their lives. On shelves now.
