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!

That Funny Photo I Promised

This is one line from a poem that runs all the way down that very long hallway from Grand Central Station to Times Square. (Or something like that. It's all one big building from the inside. To give you an idea, this line is part six of eight parts, and eight is at the end.) I have to face it every Monday morning when I'm moving between subway trains. The poem, as a whole, has to be the most risibly dispiriting idea for public art I've ever seen, and it thrills me every day to discover it's still up. By the way, where those movie posters are over there on the right, there are now huge posters reading JEWS FOR JESUS. Every single one of them, all the way down.
