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!

Let Me Get This Straight...

North Korea tests, or appears to test, what may have been a nuclear weapon, and McCain and Condi Rice are blaming Clinton? Jesus fucking Christ, the man is brilliant! Hasn't been in power for six years, and yet Bush seems helpless--helpless!--to do anything to change the policy or to even talk to Pyongyang even one single time. Because for Bush, diplomacy is weakness. (Or maybe is just "Diplomacy is too hard.")

I've found the best roundups on the situation---the North Korea disaster, and the weird Republican push to blame it on something besides our current policy---here and here.
