Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk: A Novel

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk - Ben Fountain

I absolutely loved this book. I'm not saying it doesn't have some minor flaws, but despite them it is fantastic. In a weird way it reminded me of Super Sad True Love Story, but the satire here is so much more resonant since it is set in the present. It shines a light on some aspects of American myth-making that are unflattering at times, but for my money that is the purpose of literature. Sorry i am gushing. I just really liked this book.
