"War is hell in this novel of inspired absurdity." (starred review) 04/01/2012 "[T]he book is a gripping, eloquent provocation. Class, privilege, power, politics, sex, commerce and the life-or-death dynamics of battle all figure in Billy Lynn's surreal game day experience." - Janet Maslin 05/07/2012 "Fountain's achievement [is] grand, intimate and joyous." - Geoff Dyer 05/20/2012 "Rarely does such a ruminative novel close with such momentum." - Carolyn Kellogg 07/01/2012
