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

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!

Countdown to Homefulness--1 Day Left

After carefully considering the driving plan I'd have to do to get my stuff from Jersey City (New Jersey) AND Clinton Hill (Brooklyn) into my new place in Alphabet City (Manhattan), I've done the only sensible thing: I've decided to hire movers, the way a real adult might do it. First time I've ever done it, and just thinking about it makes me feel as relaxed as a butterfly floating in a pool of Nembutal. I imagine a butterfly in that position might wake up poorer and not even care so much.
