All wars are fought twice, the first time on the battlefield, the second time in memory. From the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Sympathizer comes a searching exploration of the conflict Americans call the Vietnam War and Vietnamese call the American War -- a conflict that lives on in the collective memory of both nations.

"[A] gorgeous, multifaceted examination of the war Americans call the Vietnam War -- and which Vietnamese call the American War... As a writer, [Nguyen] brings every conceivable gift -- wisdom, wit, compassion, curiosity -- to the impossible yet crucial work of arriving at what he calls 'a just memory' of this war."
-- Kate Tuttle, Los Angeles Times

"In Nothing Ever Dies, his unusually thoughtful consideration of war, self-deception and forgiveness, Viet Thanh Nguyen penetrates deeply into memories of the Vietnamese war... [An] important book, which hits hard at self-serving myths."
-- Jonathan Mirsky, Literary Review

"Ultimately, Nguyen's lucid, arresting, and richly sourced inquiry, in the mode of Susan Sontag and W. G. Sebald, is a call for true and just stories of war and its perpetual legacy."
-- Donna Seaman, Booklist (starred review)
