Viet Thanh Nguyen discusses The Committed, his much-anticipated sequel to The Sympathizer—“an exhilarating roller-coaster ride filled with violence, hidden identity, and meditations on whether the colonized can ever be free” (Publishers Weekly).
This novel is “Nguyen at his most ambitious and bold,” writes Ocean Vuong. “Fierce in tone, capacious, witty, sharp, and deeply researched, The Committed marks not just a sequel to its groundbreaking predecessor, but a sum total accumulation of a life devoted to Vietnamese American history and scholarship. It asks questions central to Vietnamese everywhere—and to our very species: How do we live in the wake of seismic loss and betrayal?”
