In June, 1954, eighteen-year-old Emmett Watson is driven home to Nebraska by the warden of the juvenile work farm where he has just served fifteen months for involuntary manslaughter. His mother long gone, his father recently deceased, and the family farm foreclosed upon by the bank, Emmett’s intention is to pick up his eight-year-old brother, Billy, and head to California where they can start their lives anew.But when the warden drives away, Emmett discovers that two friends from the work farm have stowed away in the trunk of the warden’s car. Together, they have hatched an altogether different plan for Emmett’s future, one that will take the four of them on a fateful journey in the opposite direction – to the city of New York.Spanning just ten days and bursting with life, charm, richly imagined settings and unforgettable characters, The Lincoln Highway will satisfy fans of Towle’s multi-layered literary writing and is an extraordinary journey through 1950s America from a master storyteller.
