Congratulations to the 2016 Pulitzer Prize winner, Viet Thanh Nguyen, for his book The Sympathizer. The Pulitzer Prize for Fiction is awarded to “distinguished fiction published in book form during the year by an American author.”
This year’s Fiction winner, according to the Pulitzer website, offers “a layered immigrant tale told in the wry, confessional voice of a ‘man of two minds’ — and two countries, Vietnam and the United States.”
