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!

No Thumbs

Ack! Apparently, At the Movies--which I still think of as "Siskel and Ebert"--is finally ceasing production after 33 years. Ebert has a terrific reminiscence here.

I've been cableless and haven't even been able to watch the show for five years, and this still makes me sad.

Roger Ebert is my favorite movie reviewer, although he has really gotten soft lately, giving a pass to movies way too often. I'm very sad at his failing health. He won't be here much longer, I'm afraid.
