25 hours

A Strellson day

Preface

25 hours

There just aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything you want. You’ve got to give something up. It’s one of those unwritten rules of modern life. Sure. The way we see it, there’s an exception to every rule. We call it 25h. In essence, 25h covers a day in the life of four friends who live it up and throw it down in the vast metropolitan maze of New York City, a town as tough as the crust of a week old bagel and as wild as a roller coaster ride without brakes. To put it mildly. In the following pages, you’ll meet Herman, Chris, Pete and John, four irrepressible spirits from different parts of the world, united by a common goal. To make it, on their own terms, in the city that never sleeps. Along the way, they find the time to laugh, love, work, play, eat, drink, be entertained, get inspired, make art, music and memories. And, somehow, fit it all into a single day. In the winter, we move our clocks back an hour so it feels like the day lasts a little longer. In similar fashion, Herman, Chris, Pete and John manage to stretch their days by an extra hour all year long. What can we say? Boys will be boys.
