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!

Things I Love About New York: The New York Public Library

Taken in front of the 42nd Street branch of the New York Public Library. (Duh.) While I was taking this picture, I overheard some college kids behind me. One said, "Ooh! The New York Public Library! I remember that from..." and then someone else said "Let's..." and there was a confusion of voices. But the final word came from a different voice that said, "No. Let's only take pictures of places where good movies were made."

Since I doubt they were meaning to insult Breakfast at Tiffany's or Ghostbusters, I can only assume they were talking about this film.

This was before Sex and the City came out (I took it the week before I published it), but I understand that would work just as well too. I hope you didn't buy Manolo Blahniks just for the premiere.
