Ben Fountain - Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk

Writer Ben Fountain reads from Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk ($25.99). Both poignant and funny, this new novel is described by Karl Marlantes as “the Catch-22 of the Iraq War” and by Madison Smartt Bell as “as close to the Great American Novel as anyone is likely to come these days — an extraordinary work that captures and releases the unquiet spirit of our age.”

Ben Fountain is the author of Brief Encounters with Che Guevara. He has received the PEN/Hemingway Award, a Whiting Writers' Award, an O. Henry Prize, and two Pushcart Prizes among other honors and awards. His fiction has been published in the Paris Review, Harper's, Zoetrope: All-Story, and Stories from the South: The Year's Best, and his nonfiction has appeared in the New York Times and elsewhere. He lives in Dallas, Texas.
