Overview

In einem spektakulären Gefecht haben die Jungs eine feindliche Elitetruppe im Irak ausgeschaltet – aufgezeichnet von einem Kamera-Team der Fox News. So wurden die Kämpfer über Nacht zu gefeierten Stars. Was lag näher, als sie heimzuholen und auf eine Victory-Tour durchs Land zu karren? Ben Fountain leuchtet den letzten Tag dieser Show mit 10.000-Watt-Strahlern aus. Ein Riesen-Stadion, wild gewordene Cheerleader, die sich darum reißen, mit den Helden ihren Spaß zu haben, Reiche und Superreiche, die sich im Ruhm der jungen Krieger sonnen, Hollywood-Filmproduzenten, die schon am Skript der Story basteln. Ein Tohuwabohu medialer Übersteigerung und Massenhysterie. Billy Lynn, 19 Jahre alt, treibt wie auf einer Woge durch diesen Tag: Heimweh, Trauer, Alkohol – und eine plötzlich aufkeimende Liebe, die ihn seine Zweifel an diesem Krieg umso schärfer spüren lässt ...

Ben Fountain
Ben Fountain
From our Discover Great New Writers editors: "It's our pleasure to introduce Ben Fountain, a writer with a sharp, provocative mind whose debut, a collection of eight short stories, offers both a journey to places most of us have never seen, and a view on life and war that's full of ambiguity."

Biography

Ben Fountain's fiction has appeared in Harper's magazine, The Paris Review, and Zoetrope: All-Story, and he has been awarded an O. Henry Prize, a Pushcart Prize, and other honors. He is the fiction editor of Southwest Review and lives with his wife and their two children in Dallas, Texas.

Good To Know

Some interesting outtakes from our interview with Fountain:

"The smartest thing I did in law school: asking my future wife to go out dancing with me. The smartest thing I did when practicing law: quitting. The smartest thing I've done in writing: following my own head and writing what I wanted to write, and nothing but."

"I think I was lucky to come of age in a place and time -- the American South in the 1960s and '70s -- when the machine hadn't completely taken over life. The natural world was still the world, and machines -- TV, telephone, cars -- were still more or less ancillary, and computers were unheard of in everyday life. I suppose I'm as much a drudge to technology as most anybody these days, but my sensibility was formed outside of the realm of the machine, and I don't think it will ever have quite the grip on me that it has on people who came of age later. So hopefully it will never run me quite as efficiently as it would had I been born 12 or 15 years later, and to the extent that's true maybe it means I have a few more options open to me. One hopes, anyway."
