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!

Come See Daisey's "Invincible Summer"!

I forgot to mention that Mike Daisey's INVINCIBLE SUMMER, which I highly recommend, is in its final six performances. It's a story about Mike's move to New York City just after his marriage, just before 9/11, and just before his parents suddenly and bafflingly divorced. In the process it becomes a dazzling take-you-everywhere riff that includes the history of the New York subway, the nature and origins of Mike's odd and fascinating marriage, and---really---the best 9/11 story I've ever heard: not self-pitying, not self-aggrandizing, just a real moment-by-moment account of well-analyzed bewilderment. Come and see how to do it right.

And it's at the Public now, rather than Collective: Unconscious, so the stairs are safe. Go!

Oh, by the way, there was an article a few days ago in the New York Times about Mike and Jean-Michelle Gregory, his director and his wife, which is a lot of fun to read. Here's the link.
