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!

Ultraquick Dave Quiz

I just passed a bookstore window carrying a fantasy book titled Bloodspell. The title struck me as such an agonizing cliche that I came up with the following question:

If you take any two of the words BLADE, BLOOD, SPELL, and STORM, and turn them into a book title---either as one word or two, and in any order---which do you suppose would be the most popular? And which two words, as search terms, do you suppose would return the largest number of hits on, say,

I know the answers. I'm just asking y'all to guess.

P.S. The answer to the Al Franken puzzle was LIBERALS and BALLSIER.

Happy belated, by the way!
