About the Author
Praise For Tree of Smoke…
"Denis Johnson has delivered his masterpiece.” —Chris Offutt "The God I want to believe in has a voice and a sense of humor like Denis Johnson's." —Jonathan Franzen
"Prose of amazing power and stylishness." —Philip Roth “Once Johnson gets his hooks into you—it takes about two sentences—it’s . . . pretty much impossible to stop reading.” —David Gates, The New York Times Book Review “An amazingly talented writer . . . We can hear Twain in his biting irony, Whitman in his erotic excess, not a little of Dashiell Hammett too in the hard sentences he throws back at his gouged, wounded world.” —Vince Passaro, Newsday
