Life During Wartime: Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk

Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain is getting a lot of coverage, and the preview copy has been on my to-read list for months. I guess I was reluctant to read it because I figured it would be emotionally difficult, but when I finally picked it up, I had a hard time putting it down. Let me tell you: It deserves the hype. This novel very well be to the current wars what The Things They Carried and In Country are to the Vietnam war.
