Leitman book Margot Leitman is a wonderful stand-up comedian, screenwriter, and storyteller (5-time Moth winner and “GrandSLAM” champion). She also teaches a class in storytelling that I took in New York (Awesome class!). Long Story Short, her book on telling true stories, was published last year (Buy it here!), and there’s a mention of your humble narrator.

What I loved about Joel, is you never knew what direction his story was taking, and he wasn’t afraid to go dark. He wasn’t seeking audience approval; he was sharing his truth. (p. 204)

The story Margot goes on to talk about is called “Boyfriend Guy.” Buy the book to read more!
