Author: Dan Vyleta

Smoke is set in an England that is utterly strange yet utterly real. An England where people who are wicked in thought or deed are marked by the Smoke that pours forth from their bodies, a sign of their fallen state. The aristocracy do not smoke, proof of their virtue and right to rule. At an elite boarding school where the sons of the wealthy are groomed to take power as their birthright, we meet Thomas Argyle and Charlie Cooper. On a field trip to London, Thomas and Charlie begin to suspect that everything they have been taught about Smoke is a lie. This is the world of Smoke-a world of great danger and extraordinary wonders.

Born to Czech emigre parents, Dan Vyleta is an inveterate migrant who has lived in Germany, Canada, the USA and the UK.

His second novel, The Quiet Twin, was shortlisted for the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize; his third, The Crooked Maid, was a finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and winner of the J.I. Segal Award.
