Billy Lynn s Long Half-Time Walk is a razor-sharp satire set in Texas during America s war in Iraq. It explores the gaping national disconnect between the war at home and the war abroad.

Ben Fountain’s remarkable debut novel follows the surviving members of the heroic Bravo Squad through one exhausting stop in their media-intensive "Victory Tour" at Texas Stadium, football mecca of the Dallas Cowboys, their fans, promoters, and cheerleaders.

National Book Award Finalist for Fiction (2012), Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Fiction (2012),
