Originally published: U.S.: Viking
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.

I loved this book. It’s so much more than a ‘road’ book. The writing just flows and the story-telling is compelling.The characters are all fascinating. The physical diversion from the Lincoln Highway are mirrored by the diversions of the narrative into other interesting, tangential by-ways. I think this is his best book to date.
