'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' by Ben Fountain

A finalist for the 2012 National Book Award, Ben Fountain's novel "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" puts a group of American soldiers from the Iraq war at a Dallas Cowboys game. "The men of Bravo are not cold," it begins. "It's a chilly and windwhipped Thanksgiving Day with sleet and freezing rain forecast for late afternoon, but Bravo is nicely blazed on Jack and Cokes thanks to the epic crawl of game-day traffic and the limo's minibar."
