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!

Update: I'm Not Dead!

I'm here at Kinko's/FedEx, paying $18 an hour for internet service, and I just thought I'd pop in to add that I still don't have internet access at my new place, but that should change this week. Normally I'd post during my lunch break at work, but things have been unusually busy.

On the plus side, however, I should be blogging soon about an unusual spike in my blog's hits, and I've written a chapter that I REALLY like--a "Response to Objections" that includes a blunt takedown of traditional "interfaith dialog" and ecumenism. (Upshot: we need to be less polite and more exciting.) Also: I bought a scanner! So from now on, expect cartoons that you can actually see clearly!

It's all very exciting. Now all I need is web access to express it. Ciao for now.
