Pulitzer Prize-winning author Viet Thanh Nguyen joins us to discuss The Refugees; his new collection of eight stories exploring immigration. Set in the United States and Vietnam, Nguyen gives voice to an array of people including a young Vietnamese refugee who lives with two gay men in San Francisco, and a Vietnamese writer who is haunted by the ghosts of civilians and soldiers killed in the war.

Viet Thanh Nguyen will appear with author Elif Batuman at the 92nd St. Y's Kaufmann Concert Hall on March 16 at 8 p.m. Info here.
