The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

I'm a storyteller in the New York area who is a regular on NPR's "This American Life" and at shows around the city. Moved to New York in 2006 and am working on selling a memoir of my years as a greeting card writer, and (as a personal, noncommercial obsession) a nonfiction book called "How to Love God Without Being a Jerk." My agent is Adam Chromy at Artists and Artisans. If you came here after hearing about my book on "This American Life" and Googling my name, the "How to Love God" book itself isn't in print yet, and may not even see print in its current form (I'm focusing on humorous memoir), but here's a sample I've posted in case you're curious anyway: Sample How To Love God Introduction, Pt. 1 of 3. Or just look through the archives for September 18, 2007.) The book you should be expecting is the greeting card book, about which more information is pending. Keep checking back!

I Can Totter!

After a miserable weekend spent coughing myself hoarse and blowing my nose into so many Kleenex that they're best measured in acreage, I find myself this morning more or less normal. Not that the allergies are gone, but they've stuffed my nose and head so much that they seem to have found a miserable equilibrium, and I can actually walk around and squint at things without feeling disgustingly moist or leaky. Instead I've moved to that stage where I have a dry cough that horrifies the people around me, which at least *I* can live with. So I'm going to the library now to edit a bunch of crosswords. I expect a lot of shushing.
