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!

Unusually Satirical Graffiti

I'd better post this now, while Rudy Giuliani is still in the race. A few days ago at the subway station I saw this ad for Cloverfield--the new film where, judging from the poster, an interstellar menace destroys the Statue of Liberty and a large section of New York skyline. And I noticed that someone had drawn a comment in the upper right corner...

Here's a close-up, since it's hard to see:

I hope this means that fear is finally backfiring as a political strategy. But it does raise one question: who the hell are New York Republicans going to back? (My guess: Hard-liner types to Romney, centrists to McCain, independents to Obama.)
