Ben Fountain - PEN/Hemingway Award-winning Author

In his page-turning fiction and nonfiction, New York Times bestselling author Ben Fountain reveals the absurd, disturbing and sometimes sinister undercurrents that bubble just below the surface of “normal” life. His first collection of short stories—Brief Encounters with Che Guevara—dazzled critics and earned the prestigious PEN/Hemingway Award and Barnes & Noble Discover Award for Fiction. His first published novel, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, not only won the National Book Critics’ Circle Award, it inspired three-time Oscar-winning director Ang Lee to bring Fountain’s “inquiry into an era where America seems to have lost its mind” to the big screen.

Now Fountain hones in on the ultimate “truth is stranger than fiction” tale—the surreal dynamics surrounding the 2016 presidential election in Beautiful Country Burn Again: Democracy, Rebellion, and Revolution. Through a collection of essays written while covering the campaign for The Guardian, Fountain explains why “Trump was the logical culmination of a certain strain of American politics and culture and psyche.”

Don’t miss this provocative Council program with long-time Dallas resident Ben Fountain.
