Join us for a discussion about Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain. Acerbic, heart-wrenching, and at times out-right hilarious, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk has been hailed as the new Catch 22 or Slaughterhouse-Five. The story follows eight young soldiers of Bravo Squad, who find themselves national heroes after fighting bravely in Iraq—action caught on camera by a Fox news crew. At the heart of the novel is Billy Lynn, who won special fame for his action during the firefight. But the fight cost Billy his best friend.
