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!

Help Make Music Radical Again!

Vote for my friends, Girls on Film, to help them get on the Lollapalooza tour. They're an eighties-style New Wave glam band that consistently puts on the best, most crowd-pleasing shows I've seen in ten years. (Their recordings, though great fun, simply can't do their live shows justice. They've got the robotic moves, the New Romantic backup singers, and outfits you can scarcely believe. Pure kicks!) You can actually vote every day, so if you like them, keep coming back. Here's the link.

And come to think of it, here's their website.

They are also, by the way, all magnificent women who are well worth talking to after the show. So you should definitely see them if they ever come through.
