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!

Upcoming Show (Last Minute Notice)

I'll be storytelling TOMORROW NIGHT (That's Tuesday) at Sherry Weaver's Speakeasy.  The show is at the Coraline Cafe at 29 Cornelia Street (I think of it as being sort of "behind" the 4th Street A station), starts at 8:30, and there's a $10 cover plus a food or drink item.  As you can see from the link, I'll be performing with certifiably great people like James Braly and Faye Lane, so it'll be a terrific evening. 

If you see me, feel free to comment on how pale I look.  For the past two days, I've woken up, started writing, and didn't venture outside until 9 pm.   But don't worry--in the absence of sunlight I've begun taking vitamin D tablets to stave off rickets.

(P.S.  Sorry for the last-minuteness of this announcement.  If it helps, I'll also be performing a completely different story on October 16th at Sherry's other Speakeasy show at Bar Reis in Brooklyn--375 Fifth Avenue in Park Slope. I'll be telling along with Andy Christie and Tracy Rowland, among others.  Admission is $10, but here you don't have to buy food or anything.)

(NOTE: An original version of this post said the show was tonight.  It's not.  Sorry for any confusion that I may have deepened.)
