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!

Q. Why For Dave No Write?

A. Because again I've got no Internet at home. The hell with you, Time Warner! I'd totally move to another provider if you didn't have a monopoly on cable service and I had money! Alas, we have to accept the world as it is. But that doesn't mean you don't suck.

Tonight I'm going to my first storytelling slam. I'll be back with as full a report as I can manage, given my diminished logging hours. I'm sure Time-Warner deeply regrets the inconvenience.

Looks like I’m having better luck posting from Australia than you are from Upstate Manhattan! Just got back from the Outback—and I’m not talkin’ about the steakhouse!

More later. Good luck storytelling.
