Bourbon Cowboy

The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

My Photo
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!

Netflix Wants Me to Suffer

I'm finishing the book today (fingers crossed), but in an idle moment I wandered online to my Netflix account and saw the following note, which you'll have to take my word for (oh, for a camera phone again!):

"Because you liked Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling For Columbine, we think you'll like Dan Rather Reports.

Dan Rather Reports
Starring: Dan Rather
Genre: Television

Customer Average: 2.0 stars
Our best guess for David: 1.4 stars"

Note to Netflix programmers: before you send out a Recommendation, send the Recommendation over to the Best Guess's house and let them chat a bit. Thanks.
