GROSS: What did you write today?

SEDARIS: I was on tour a few weeks ago, and I wrote this thing in this woman’s book, and I don’t know, apparently, she got upset about it. But I meant it in a good way. I must have just misunderstood. We must have misunderstood one another. And I hate the thought of anybody being angry at me like that, but… I mean, really, what I wrote in her book, it’s the filthiest thing. It’s unbelievable. Really, you cannot get any filthier than this. And that’s what I kind of liked about it, you know, as a book inscription.
