Excerpt: David Rakoff (born November 27, 1964) is a Canadian-born writer based in New York City who is noted for his humorous, sometimes autobiographical non-fiction essays. Rakoff is an essayist, journalist and actor and is a regular contributor to Public Radio International's This American Life. Rakoff has described himself as a "New York writer" who also happens to be a "Canadian writer", a "Jewish writer", a "gay writer'" and an "East Asian Studies major who has forgotten most of his Japanese" writer.
