Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 310 pages. Published in 2012. The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Ben Fountain's "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk". His first novel. If Kevin Powers' "The Yellow Birds" has been compared to Hemingway (because it's about war heroes), Ben Fountain's satirical novel has been compared to Joseph Heller (because it's about war heroes as anti-heroes). We need both novels in order to finally comprehend the definitive madness that was the Iraq War. " 'Okay, so maybe they aren't the Greatest Generation', writes Ben Fountain, who manages a sly feat: Giving us a maddening and believable cast of characters who make us feel what it must be like to go to war. Fierce and fearless writing" (Neal Thompson). "A wicked sense of humor, wonderful writing, and beneath the anger and outrage, a generous heart" (Tampa Bay Times). "Tough yet tender" sums up all great literature. The basis of the film adaptation by Ang Lee. An absolute "must-have" title for Ben Fountain collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Ben Fountain. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the National Book Awards Souvenir Program during which event his signature was obtained. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant new voices of contemporary American literature. A fine copy.
