The Books of My Numberless Dreams

New Sedaris at the New Yorker

Posted on: February 19, 2007

Does this mean that he has a new book coming out soon? (Hmmm, nothing shows up on Amazon.) I thought he was trying too hard at the beginning of the piece but he finds his rhythm and it all works out: I at turns chuckled, guffawed or dropped my jaw for short periods of time.

His wife stirred to action then, and became almost sociable. “So this boyfriend,” she said. “Let me ask, which one of you is the woman?”

“Well, neither of us,” I told her. “That’s what makes us a homosexual couple. We’re both guys.”

“But no,” she said. “I mean, like, in prison or whatnot. One of you has to be in for murder and the other for child molesting or something like that, right? I mean, one is more like a normal man.”
