The winner of the fiction prize is a part espionage, part satirical thriller that tells the story of a Communist sympathizer in 1975 who escapes Saigon for Los Angeles and begins spying on a South Vietnamese group that he infiltrates. Author Nguyen’s debut novel was a smash critical hit, and his intention was to explore the Vietnam conflict in a more complex way than so many others do.

Drama: Lin-Manual Miranda for Hamilton
