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!

Eating the President-Elect, Part I

I was in Chicago for Thanksgiving, and I asked my friend Jen, "How come I'm not seeing any Obama stickers on the cars?"  She said, "In Chicago, it goes without saying."  

I guess this is the case, because here are a few pictures I took at a deli we visited a few days later.  I have to say I'm impressed at the accuracy of the drawing.  I couldn't do a recognizable Barack even in pen, much less in frosting.

UPDATE:  I should add that, although she's clearly very popular, not all of Obama's foodstuffs had him sharing the spotlight with his wife.  Here was a twofer I bought whose point seemed to be Illinois Presidential pride:

Would you happen to have the name of the deli who baked these?

It's Max and Benny's, in Northbrook. Or so I am informed.
