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!

The Honorable Gentleman Can Start Rotting Already

Jesse Helms has died, which reminds me that a friend of mine at Hallmark actually kept a bottle of champagne ready to celebrate with in just such an event. So drink up, Mark! You've had to wait at least ten years longer than anyone had a right to expect.

I was going to add a note or two about how, despite my general optimism, you have to admit that some people really don't have redeeming qualities. But really, this post from Dan Savage, which gives a rundown of Mr. Helms's unrepentantly odious career, is all anyone needs to read about the guy.
