One Hundred Miles from Manhattan is a fresh, funny, positive and affectionate portrait of life in small-town America—and beyond. Although he had given up interviewing movie and rock stars, writers, kings and prime ministers, he didn’t miss it. Chatting every day to the people of Rhinebeck was equally satisfying. “Every life is interesting,” Fesser says. “All you need is the time and commitment to pull out a good story. Many reporters wait for the big story and miss out on a lot of fascinating tales that happen right before their eyes.”
This book is filled with the stories of people Fesser met, the places he visited and the things he learned during his year in Rhinebeck. From the German neighbors who welcome in the New Year by jumping back and forth from the couch to the coffee table to a Texas rancher who follows Native American traditions at his bison ranch. From a guide who leads fishing expedition into Alaska’s Kuskokwim Mountains to the engineer responsible for the steam conduction system in Manhattan’s underbelly. And from a former follower of Reverend Moon turned track coach, to the man who created Big Bird.

In more than 1200 letters written by Benito Pérez Galdós, this recognized master of the modern Spanish novel and prominent leader in the progressive movements of his time reflects on the nature and purpose of art and the novel, as well as the political and religious struggles of the Spanish people and his own capacity for friendship and love.
