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!

I Re-Exist!

I now have Internet access at home again! I can blog from wherever! I can do research and stuff! I'm tempted to e-mail everybody just because I can.

For the moment, however, I just want to make one observation: Fountains of Wayne's Adam Schlesinger is such a good songwriter that even one of his parody songs---"Pop Goes My Heart," from the movie Music and Lyrics---has been going through my head all day. If you haven't heard the song, or seen its very funny 80's music video parody, check it out here. Visually it's Wham!, musically it's ABC, and the "storyline" is more than a little a-ha. Clever all around.
