About Me

My favorite story of all time is:
Miller's Crossing ("Nobody knows anyone.")

Right now, I'm reading:
"Why Be Happy When You Can Be Normal," by Jeanette Winterson

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
This American Life, Salon. ESPN Magazine. The New Yorker. The Moth. On bottle caps. The sports section of Philly.com.

In bed I like to read:
I like it when my wife reads me movies reviews from The New Yorker as I fall asleep.

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell \"it's the story of my life,\" what would you be talking about?
I have answer that question, of course, by sharing one of my Six-Word Memoirs: "Now I obsessively count the words."

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
"Fight Test" by the Flaming Lips.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
My next book editor.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
The 20s go fast. Slow down.
