About The Lincoln Highway

Emmett Watson is an 18-year-old convict who has just finished a 15-month sentence for involuntary manslaughter. Upon being driven home by his warden, he discovers 2 of his friends have stowed themselves away in the warden's trunk. They divert Emmett's plans to take his orphaned 8-year-old brother to California, and drag them on a cross-country adventure to New York City.

The novel takes place across just 10 days and follows multiple viewpoints. The rich settings, strong characterisation and attention to historical detail will remind readers of Towles' previous work, A Gentleman in Moscow.
