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!

There Is A Light That Will Never Go Out, Almost

One last thing before my workday begins: Last night, my little fluorescent desk lamp burned out. This wouldn't be worthy of note except that this desk lamp, by some miracle, has been working for me every night for almost eleven years. I inherited it from my first girlfriend, who had used it for years before me and who thought it might come in handy when I moved from Tucson to Kansas City in late 1995.

So I have to go out today and buy a new bulb. I don't know what these things cost, but even if it's $100, on a dollars-to-lumens ratio, I'm pretty sure I'll come out ahead.
