Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain
Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk

Brandon Duncan, January 2, 2013

A book whose plot involves the prospect of a film treatment that I think would itself make for a good piece of movie-making, preferably in the style of those 70s BBS productions like Five Easy Pieces. It's a funny and relatively poignant novel, written with a steady grasp of reality, except for a few aspects that seem a little too superficial or facile (e.g., references to Fox News, the clouds of War On Terror words in their native dialects).
