"Tree of Smoke "is the story of William "Skip" Sands, CIA--engaged in Pschological Operations against the Vietcong--and the disasters that befall him.

In the words of Michiko Kakutani in "The New York Times," "Tree of Smoke" is "bound to become one of the classic works of literature produced by that tragic and uncannily familiar war."
