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!

Beau Sup

Detritus, 115th Street and 5th Avenue. Notice that, although it's half of a sign, it still spells two legitimate words. Yay serendipity!

Sheesh. First I thought I saw "Beam Us Up", then I thought "they misspelled bean soup?", then I got confused by your "half a sign" comment, then I looked at the title of the post. Oh.

I'm slow today.

I thought it said BEAN SOUP too, at first. That's why I stopped at all. Because I thought, "Even if you sold bean soup, why the hell would you advertise it in neon?"

And of course I can't resist pointing out that BEAN SOUP, as you know, is an anagram of SUBPOENA.
