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!

The QUESTIONS for the Horror or Western Trivia Quiz...

Since the Facebook Quiz function has more limitations than I thought (I thought I could get it to direct people to my blog for explanation, but no such luck), here's what the quiz is. The answers are here, in the Comments to the previous post.

Below is a list of 11 classic film stars, many of whom went out on rather minor notes. Each of these performers' last films was either a horror film or a western. Can you guess which is which?

(I'm referring to major US theatrical releases, and in every case the performer is listed in the credits.)

1. John Wayne
2. Marilyn Monroe
3. Joan Crawford
4. Bette Davis
5. Veronica Lake
6. Robert Mitchum
7. Jean Arthur
8. Fred Astaire
9. Rita Hayworth
10. Barbara Stanwyck
11. Jimmy Stewart
