Tree of Smoke is the 2007 National Book Award Winner for Fiction. One of the New York Times 10 Best Books of the Year

Named a Best Book of the Year by Time , The Washington Post , The Boston Globe , Chicago Tribune , San Francisco Chronicle , Salon , Slate , The National Book Critics Circle, The Christian Science Monitor. . . . Tree of Smoke is the story of William "Skip" Sands, CIA--engaged in Psychological Operations against the Vietcong--and the disasters that befall him. It is also the story of the Houston brothers, Bill and James, young men who drift out of the Arizona desert and into a war where the line between disinformation and delusion has blurred away. 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."
