Bourbon Cowboy

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!

Classic Movie News For Sunday

I'm off to brunch with my recently-CAT-scanned friend Ryan, but Turner Classic Movies is playing right now, and I had to state two things:

1.) I've just seen Libeled Lady (1936) with William Powell, Myrna Loy, Spencer Tracy and Jean Harlow! It's still early to tell, but it may have suddenly vaulted into place as my all-time favorite screwball comedy. Like The Philadelphia Story, but faster paced and a little more broad.

2.) One of my all-time favorite films, The Devil And Miss Jones, with Charles Coburn and Jean Arthur, is playing on Turner Classic Movies today at 4:15! This movie is NOT YET AVAILABLE ON DVD, so this is your chance! Trust me---it's wonderful.

Okay. Brunch waits...
