The Sympathizer: A Novel (Pulitzer Prize for Fiction)The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen 

With Saigon about to fall to the enemy in the waning days of the Vietnam War, a South Vietnamese general goes about the task of deciding who will be given permission to board the last flights out of the country. At his side is his trusted captain, a man whose loyalty he does not question. As Saigon falls, the general and his colleagues escape to America, where they find freedom, but not status. They settled into new lives as janitors, cooks, and liquor store owners, unaware that one of them is secretly reporting their activities to the enemy back in Vietnam. The captain's loyalties have long belonged to the Communists, and even in a new land, he will do anything to keep his actions a secret. First novel. (2015)
