Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain (£12.00)Publisher: Canongate — 2012Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0857864386]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper slighlty pulled at the head of the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: From the cover: “Nineteen-year-old Billy Lynn is home from war.

Back in Texas, he has become a celebrity. A Fox News crew filmed Billy and the rest of Bravo squad defeating Iraqi insurgents in a ferocious firefight. Now Billy is a decorated soldier and Bravo’s three minutes of extreme bravery under fire is a YouTube sensation.

Seizing on this PR gift, the Bush administration has sent the surviving members of Bravo on a nationwide ‘Victory Tour’ to reassure the folks at home. Today, during the final hours of the tour, they arrive at Texas Stadium as guests of honour as the Dallas Cowboys take on the Chicago Bears in a nationally broadcast Thanksgiving Day game.

Ben Fountain’s remarkable novel follows Billy and his fellow Bravos through a climactic afternoon, as they mix with the rich and powerful, endure the politics and affections of their fellow citizens, aspire to sex and marriage with the famous Cowboys cheerleaders, share centre stage with Destiny’s Child during the halftime extravaganza and attempt to close a movie deal with the help of a veteran Hollywood producer. They will learn hard truths about love and death, family and friendship, duty and honour. Tomorrow, they must go back to war.

Tender and full of humanity, this is a wickedly funny and urgent novel about a young man, the citizens who sent him to war, the family he left behind and the era that let it happen. In Billy Lynn, Ben Fountain has created a new American hero for our times.”

In the grim, dark and violent town, Braid struck a bargain, yet recognized at once, as did the girl, that her presence was as unwelcome as it had been unexpected. Yet the town needed Braid as much as he needed work, and as he set about bringing law to its lawless streets, the disapproval and resentments were allowed to simmer. Then came the attempt on the Coldheart bank, and when the smoke of the fierce gun-battle had cleared, Braid and his girl faced one final challenge.”Notes: Size: 7¾" x 4¾". Pictorial boards.
