Reviews

"Denis Johnson is a true American artist, and Tree of Smoke is a tremendous book." --The New York Times Book Review

"The God I want to believe in has a voice and a sense of humor like Denis Johnson's." --Jonathan Franzen

"I can't be sure that there's been a better American novel published in the past ten years. It is a masterpiece." --The Miami Herald

"It will . . . get inside your head like the war it is describing--mystifying, horrifying, mesmerizing. [Johnson] has written a book that by the end wraps around you as tightly as a snake." --The Washington Post Book World

"Tree of Smoke is a masterpiece of language and depth." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Johnson has captured the zeitgeist of American experience as surely as Twain, Hemingway, or Ellison." --New York Post

"Opens a window onto a world of mystery, war, and intrigue whose importance in the (usually) unwritten history of our republic can't be denied." --Chicago Tribune

"Johnson has written his War and Peace." --Harper's Magazine
