Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk

In addition to being one of the nicest guys I know, my friend Ben Fountain also happens to be one of the best American writers of fiction alive today. If you liked his terrific 2006 book of short stories Brief Encounters with Che Guevara, grab his new novel Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, a book about war, class and commerce that is one of the best books of the year.

Here is Janet Maslin's review in the New York Times and By Jeff Turrentine's review in the Washington Post.
