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!

A Poetic Milestone Reached

With the creation of "vaccary," I have now written at least one vocabulary poem for every letter in the alphabet. Unfortunately, it turns out that many of them (like the Z series that started the whole thing) began life in my old "Dave Update" email list, so at least six letters remain currently unrepresented on my blog, including my "zetacism" mini-collection. What's more, they're all on an old computer that doesn't have a monitor right now. When this is fixed, I'll run a special post with links to 26 vocabulary poems, one for each letter. In the meantime, let's just have a quick toast: to the entire alphabet! Even the letter H, which was a pain in the ass to find words for!
