Pocketnytt

Idag investerade jag i Denis Johnson:s tokhyllade Tree of smoke. Jag ser oerhört mycket fram emot att läsa den. Jag vet faktiskt inte när jag var så sugen på en bok senast!


Tree of Smoke – the name given to a ‘psy op’ that might or might not be hypothetical and might or might not be officially sanctioned – is Denis Johnson’s most gripping, visionary and ambitious work to date. Set in south-east Asia and the US, and spanning two decades, it ostensibly tells the story of Skip Sands, a CIA spy who may or may not be engaged in psychological operations against the Viet Cong -- but also takes the reader on a surreal yet vivid journey, dipping in and out of characters’ lives to reveal fundamental truths at the heart of the human condition.

Observer kallar den "A Catch-22 for our times", kan en bok få ett mycket bättre omdöme?
