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!

Oh No! Pleasure!

The expert(s) have apparently spoken, and the answer to my question about prostitution and pornography is here. The short version: Porn is legal but prostitution isn't because prostitution is for personal sexual enjoyment while porn is an acting job. So trading sex for money is fine, as long as you don't actually enjoy it. Pleasure: that's the real sin. I should have known.

I'd move to the Netherlands, if it wasn't so damn cold there.

I've asked myself that very question. This is too crazy!
