Staff Reviews

You'll never watch a halftime show or celebration of our military without thinking about this book. It takes place during one day at Texas Stadium on Thanksgiving where Billy is being honored for his bravery during combat. From the perspective of the “hero” you see with fresh eyes what military veterans struggle with.

“Fountain has created a sort of inverted Odyssey in which our hero, Billy Lynn, comes home from the Iraq war to find a whole new catalog of trials and challenges awaiting him and the rest of Bravo Company before they are shipped back to the Gulf. Taking place on a single day, at a Thanksgiving football game in Dallas, the novel not only gives us a fresh take on how we view capitalism, materialism, ourselves, our country, and our military, but also provides a wonderfully empathetic tragic-hero in Billy Lynn, at once a brave and fearless fighting machine while still a very innocent and confused young man.”
