Bourbon Cowboy

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!

Creepy Baby Dolls at Night

Walking to the L train after a fine Jonathan Richman concert, my friends and I encountered this weird cart at 6th and Bergen in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It must be some kind of art. All I know is, those gold-headed babies are just lying in wait for my next nightmare. For some reason the polka-dotted bear hung by his neck from the axle reminds me of the elephant from the Island of Misfit Toys. I guess that's what art is supposed to do: make you think. I think it's creepy.
