Clare Hall Book Club
Join the College’s Book Club as they discuss The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles, Penguin, Great Britain, 2022.
“The Lincoln Highway” by Amor Towles is a 592-page historical adventure novel set in the early summer of 1954. The story follows four boys, three 18-year-olds who met in a juvenile reformatory, plus a brainy 8-year-old, as they set out from Nebraska in an old Studebaker in search of a better future, with a few detours along the way.1 The book is remarkably brisk, remarkably buoyant, and permeated with light, wit, and youth. Towles has snipped off a minuscule strand of existence – 10 wayward days – and when we look through his lens, we see that this brief interstice teems with stories, grand as legends.
