Beautiful Country Burn Again: Democracy, Rebellion, and Revolution

Ben Fountain, NY Times best-selling author of Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, has harnessed his narrative talents in Beautiful Country Burn Again to write a searing indictment of the state of our nation. The Book moves from the early days of the Iowa Caucus to the defining moments of the National Conventions and culminates in the aftershocks of the weeks following election night. Fountain probes deeply into history, illuminating the forces and watershed events of the past that mirror and precipitated the present.

Ben Fountain is the author of two major works of prize-winning fiction, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk and Brief Encounters with Che Guevara: Stories, and was a 2018 finalist for the Simpson Family Literary Prize.
