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!

Couch In Grand Central

As part of a promotion of Bravo's new show, "Top Design," The S train section of Grand Central Terminal was tricked out all last week with lamps, couches, carpets, draperies, and other accoutrements. (To the right, at the end of the platform where people stream in, there was a foofy white couch. For a week, buskers could actually lounge.)

I'm glad it's gone now. It was a cruel thing to see on a Friday after work when you've still got an hour before you get home. But the disconnect was fun to observe and (hereby) share.
