Two brothers venture across 1950s America to New York in the absorbing new novel by the author of the bestselling A Gentleman in Moscow.

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.

With his mother long gone, his father recently deceased, and the family

farm foreclosed upon by the bank, Emmett plans to pick up his

eight-year-old brother Billy and head to California to start a new life.

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. They

have a very different plan for Emmett's future, one that will take the

four of them on a fateful journey in the opposite direction - to New

York City.

Bursting with life, charm, richly imagined settings and unforgettable characters, The Lincoln Highway is an extraordinary journey through 1950s America from the pen of a master storyteller.
