Denis Johnson

Robert Polito, moderator

Presented by:

The National Book Foundation,

The New School,

and Farrar, Straus & Giroux

6:30pm, Tishman Auditorium, 66 W 12th St, Free

Denis Johnson is author of the National Book Award winning Tree of Smoke.

Praise for Tree of Smoke:

"To write a fat novel about the Vietnam War nearly 35 years after it ended is an act of literary bravado. To do so brilliantly as Denis Johnson has in Tree of Smoke is positively a miracle."

--David Ignatius, Washington Post

"Denis Johnson has delivered his masterpiece."

--Chris Offutt

"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
