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!

Where'd Dave Go?

Sorry for the relative silence, but I'm still working on the book proposal (almost done!). And then later in the week I'm going to Boston for The MIT Mystery Hunt. So expect more silence for the next few days, alas.

But, just so I don't stay entirely out of touch, there is some news: in my eternal quest to save even more money, a little over a week ago I switched to glasses from contacts. A reasonably well lit cell pic of same should be waiting for me to upload at work. (UPDATE: There it is!)

I also, while writing, had a surprisingly productive bar-napkin-cartoon weekend. Those should appear soon.

Dude, you didn't already wear glasses? I had to pull up your myspace pics to be sure. Did you maybe wear glasses back when I was in your class. Dude, they just look so natural. Ben thought you wore glasses too.

I think I wore glasses when I was teaching you, but I've been wearing contacts for the last two years or so. I was sort of running half and half for a while, but then I accidentally sat on my glasses on a trip (they were the same color as the hotel bedspread) and I was sort of forced to wear contacts thereafter. I finally got a medical plan that covers glasses, so I was able to afford some. Unfortunately, this same plan doesn't cover contacts, which I greatly prefer. Ah, well. I need to save money these days. Someday when I'm a grown-up writer.
