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!

More Foolishness and a Sign-Off

I had no sooner gotten into work this morning, and started telling my co-workers about my exhausting weekend (I found out I have quadriceps! And they hate me now!) when two of them looked at me with concern and said, "Dave, why did you spend all weekend pushing a dolly? If you're only traveling twenty-five blocks, just hire a cab!"

Oh, right. Cabs. Sigh.

Anyway, that's what I'll probably do tomorrow morning with one more load before my friend Andy comes by after work.

But for now, I'm signing off temporarily, because I have to unplug the computer and its peripherals against its transport tomorrow. So long!

P.S. I just discovered that I can't take my computer cable along with me---the one that attaches me to the high-speed internet. Because my roommate hammered it into the floor with a series of tiny brackets. He has offered to remove the cost of a replacement cord from the remaining rent. But in the meantime, and until I can purchase and install a replacement, I'd expect limited connectivity. This stuff is never easy. Yeesh.
