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!

Commercial Break (or Yes, But Can Manolo Blahnik Do This?)

This blog is brought to you by Nike...

(Fans waiting in chairs for the release of Nike's apparently amazing Air Force One sneakers. Rivington and Clinton, on Friday.) 

...and Dewar's...



(Cool ad across the street from the Nike fans, done completely in chalk.)

...and by the American Vampire League, whatever the hell that is:

(Fun ad at Houston and Avenue A, presumably for some sort of TV show involving vampires.  The apparent defacement is actually part of the poster.)

A line forming for a sneaker that doesn't even have a lowercase "i" in front of its name? Absurd!

The vampire ads are for an upcoming HBO series.
