Reviews

Advance praise for The Lincoln Highway

"[A] captivating piece of historical fiction . . . transporting . . . a rollicking cross-country adventure, rife with unforgettable characters, vivid scenery and suspense that will keep readers flying through the pages." --TIME

"Magnificent . . . Towles is a supreme storyteller, and this one-of-a-kind kind of novel isn't to be missed." --Publishers Weekly (starred)

"Towles' third novel is even more entertaining than his much-acclaimed A Gentleman in Moscow . . . A remarkable blend of sweetness and doom, [The Lincoln Highway] is packed with revelations about the American myth, the art of storytelling, and the unrelenting pull of history. An exhilarating ride through Americana." --Kirkus Reviews (starred)

"Packed with drama, The Lincoln Highway takes place in just 10 days, with chapters narrated by a variety of characters. Towles' fans will be rewarded with many of the same pleasures they've come to expect from him: a multitude of stories told at a leisurely pace (the novel clocks in at 592 pages); numerous endearing and sometimes maddening characters; and pitch-perfect plotting with surprises at every turn...Towles has created another winning novel whose pages are destined to be turned--and occasionally tattered--by gratified readers." --BookPage (starred)

"[A] playfully thought-provoking novel . . . [Towles] juggles the pieces of his plot deftly, shifting from voice to voice, skirting sentimentality and quirkiness with a touch of wistful regret, and leading up to an ending that is bound to provoke discussion." --Booklist (starred)

"[The Lincoln Highway] is reason to rejoice for Towles's millions of fans, who made his first two novels, Rules of Civility and A Gentleman in Moscow, runaway international bestsellers." --The Millions

"An absolute beauty of a book. Every character is a gem, the many locations spring to vivid life, the book is an intricate and moving exploration of journeys and the infinite unexpected turns they can take--and somehow Towles makes it all seem effortless. As soon as I finished it, I wanted to read it again." --Tana French, bestselling author of The Searcher
