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!

Ah, Hell. Here's Jasconius.

I have a bunch of these, and since I mentioned Jasconius the fish/island, here's a classic take on the story.

And another

And if you're really curious, here's a link to the Wikipedia article. Please note that my version is more of a Monty Python version of the story, and I have modified things freely, including chopping out dull chapters where I couldn't think of anything funny to do. The Wikipedia article doesn't do the story justice. I may have to fix that later.

P.S. The fact that Wikipedia uses the same pictures I do wasn't intentional---but it shows how few classic images of Brendan are available on the web.
