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!

Obligatory Fourth of July Diversion

Andrew Sullivan has a great idea for the Fourth this year: he's asked visitors to submit "Things We Love About America," which have so far ranged from the overtly political ("Habeas Corpus!") to the utterly silly--my favorite silliness probably being the "Rabbit Seasoning" short from the heyday of Bugs Bunny.

But for some reason no one has posted this, which seems an obvious choice. (Audio not safe for work.)

Hi, Dave. It's Julie from Tallahassee. I'm married now! And pregnant! And moving to Scotland!

Big changes for everyone.

After reading your blog, it seems that you are happy and healthy and doing very well. You'll be famous in no time, I just know it. And I'll be able to say "I knew him when."

Take care.

Julie

I see Dave has gone into hibernation again. Must be busy-time in NYC. :)
