Bourbon Cowboy

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

Location: New York, New York, United States

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 Hope We Have Casual Thursdays

My shirt is wrinkly and I can't find my razor and it looks like I won't be able to find it in the next ten minutes. What's worse, I discovered this morning that if, say, you have a space problem in your bedroom and, in a pinch, you drape your just-discarded towel over a bike's exercise wheel, if you use the towel the next morning, the whoe towel smells like rubber. Both sides. So I hope no one sits too close to me today, because I'm wearing just a spritz of Eau de Wal-Mart.

On the bright side, I'll definitely finish my crossword editing job tonight. Then I'll have time, when I get home, to actually clean and iron and wash clothes and stuff. Today, though, I'm going with the Vaguely Homeless Look, which hasn't been hip since grunge. Sigh.
