Tree of Smoke by Denis Johnson

Denis Johnson's towering and mystifying new novel, Tree of Smoke, is truly one of the great Vietnam novels. The faint scent of disgust of a purposeless war seems inherited straight from Greene's view of America's tragic involvement in Southeast Asia, but the exuberant exhaustion is strictly Johnson's.
