The Lincoln Highway

by Amor Towles | 21 October 2021
Paperback

From the author of the worldwide bestseller and 'book of the decade', A
Gentleman in Moscow
Emmett returns home to pick-up his little brother Billy, tie-up his late father's
estate and get out of town for good. Since leaving the Kansas youth facility
where he's served time, Emmett has wanted one thing: to give them both a fresh
start - and that means heading out to the sparkling west.
Young, precocious Billy has plans of his own - to get to San Francisco, where
he believes their long-estranged mother is waiting for them. However, as soon as
they've loaded Emmett's bright blue Studebaker with their few belongings,
trouble arrives and brings its sidekick in the form of Duchess and Woolly, two
runaways from the very facility Emmett just left behind him.
Insatiable Duchess and his devoted, but slow companion Woolly soon wreck
Billy's plan to get onto the open road, one well-intentioned blunder at a time.
Each young man sees this journey as his chance to pursue his dreams, settle
scores and find riches. And a simple journey quickly becomes a dazzling
odyssey filled with obstacles, villains and ruses fit only for heroes to overcome.
Bursting with life, charm and unforgettable characters, The Lincoln Highway is
an extraordinary journey through 1950s America from a master storyteller.
