From southern Cook County to the Mississippi River, the Lincoln Highway meanders through many of Chicago’s suburbs before heading west through Illinois’s fertile farmland. America’s first transcontinental highway once stretched nearly 3,400 miles from New York City to San Francisco. The story of the highway’s role in shaping the contemporary American highway system is one that examines the interaction of technology and human spirit. Conceived by entrepreneur Carl G. Fischer in 1912 and endorsed by businessman Henry B. Joy, the idea of creating an automobile-friendly roadway spanning America would soon change the nature of travel in the 20th century. Lincoln Highway in Illinois defines and describes the role of the highway as it zigzags its way across the “Land of Lincoln” and highlights the cities, towns, and rural communities along its route.

Dies ist das literarische Statement einer Jugend, die inmitten der «schlechtesten der Welten» ein leidenschaftliches Bekenntnis zum «glückseligen Leben» ablegte. Tempo, Jazz, Marihuana, Sex und Freiheit waren die Zauberwörter der Beat Generation, die ständig auf der Suche nach einem intensiven, rauscherfüllten Dasein war. Ihre Trampfahrten durch die ungeheuren Weiten des Landes ließen sie ein Amerika entdecken, das die bürgerliche Erfolgsmoral nicht kannte.

„Eines der vergnüglichsten Bücher der letzten Jahre.“ DER SPIEGEL, 1947 Das Kultbuch von Clarence Day in der kongenialen Übersetzung von Hans Fallada Mit heiterem Spott und voller Liebe beschreibt Clarence Day das temperamentvolle Leben in seinem Elternhaus im New York der Jahrhundertwende. Seine Texte machten ihn über Nacht bekannt. Die Bühnenfassung wurde einer der größten Broadway-Erfolge aller Zeiten. Im Mittelpunkt steht der polternde „Herr Vater“, Clarence Day senior, der gegen die Plagen des Familienlebens aufbegehrt: gegen andere Meinungen, Verwandtenbesuch, Köchinnen oder diese neuartige Erfindung namens Telefon. Eine kluge, bissige, warmherzige und zeitlose Schilderung der ganz alltäglichen Klippen des Zusammenlebens, übersetzt von dem damals bereits weltbekannten Hans Fallada, der den wunderbar beiläufigen Humor Days mühelos ins Deutsche überträgt.
