Presentation & Booksigning with Ben Fountain: Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk
Colfax Avenue: Ben Fountain, the PEN/Hemingway Award-winning author of the critically acclaimed short story collection Brief Encounters with Che Guevara, will discuss and sign his debut novel Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk (HarperCollins). Karl Marlantes called this book “The Catch-22 of the Iraq War.” A razor sharp satire set in Texas, it explores the gaping national disconnect between the war at home and the war abroad.
“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, and will probably be remembered as one of the important books of this decade.” —Madison Smartt Bell
