Honesty Is the Best Policy

amysedaris.jpegAmy Sedaris was in San Francisco recently promoting her new book I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence.

She was being interviewed by the San Francisco Chronicle‘s TV critic, Tim Goodman. He’s young-ish, genial and not at all stodgy or self-involved like some of the older and younger, respectively, interviewers that City Arts & Lectures has hired in the past. He appears to be a perfectly normal 40-something who looks like he lives in the city and goes for drinks a couple of times a week.

After chatting for a while about what she likes and dislikes about entertaining guests (likes selling them things off her bargain table, hates when they bring sunflowers), Amy asked Tim if he enjoyed entertaining as well. With no hesitation or sarcasm, he replied calmly,

“No. I don’t really like people.”

What an excellent answer.
