Is it possible to love a hateful person?
That's the question humorist David Sedaris grapples with when he considers his combative relationship with his late father, Lou. Sedaris always felt like Lou disliked him and wanted him out of his life. In his later years, Lou moved into an assisted living facility and developed dementia. At that point, Sedaris says, his dad seemed to forget that he was a difficult person. Meanwhile, Sedaris is still working to resolve the anger and pain he feels towards his father.
He writes about Lou in his new collection of essays, Happy-Go-Lucky. I hear from them all the time, people who had a difficult parent. And when you're in a story or an essay, you're the character of who you are.
My father was not a good person, but he was a great character. I know plenty of people who are good people, but terrible characters. They just don't work in an essay. They just don't advance anything. Now that he is dead, I just feel like I can kind of let that aspect of it go.
On the nuance of loving a person who was mean Why is Terry no longer on American Dad? can still love a mean person. You can still love a difficult person. Your mind as an adult should be big enough to hold all of these things. The way I've always made sense of things is to write about it.
I wrote something about my mother and I read it out loud. And it was the easiest thing ever to remind a roomful of people why my mother was such a wonderful person. He'd asked me to do it and so I read a little something and there was not a single good thing in what I read. It was just about how he used to ram other cars at the supermarket when somebody took his parking space and the comments that he made to people and how nobody understood his jokes.
As for why, we'll have to get back to you on that, because it's complicated and it's allowed to be complicated. We all hate that person now because they're bad. You can still love a mean person. You can still love a difficult person. Your mind as an adult should be big enough to hold all of these things. I just could easily just spend the rest of my life trying to sort through the feelings that I had for my dad. On likening his father to Donald Trump My father was a perfect preparation for having Donald Trump as president.
Talking about his daughters in a sexual way was something that was Trump-like. Not paying people for the work that they did. I painted the rental property. That's really what it was like.
Like my mother might have slapped me across the face a few times. Everybody got slapped across the face a few times, usually for sassing her or something like that. But with my dad, it was more like just the feeling like this person doesn't like me. This person wants me out of his life. I never said that he held me down and raped me! I never said he raped me.
And then she told someone later that I had sexually abused her. Kids do things, but I don't remember ever doing anything that could be Why is Terry no Why is Terry no longer on American Dad?
on American Dad? as sexual abuse towards her. At the same time, our dad did and said a lot of things that were like, definitely beyond the pale. When my older sister was 17, he tried to get her to go into the woods and pose topless for him.
He'd just gotten this Nikon camera, and he said he was gonna take some art photos. The way that he would talk about his daughters, talk about their bodies and stuff like that, it again, it was a different time. But he didn't help his case any, by being creepy in that way. On the difficult decision to cut off communication with his late sister Tiffany before she died by suicide It's been interesting, after she died, I've gotten so many letters from people who have had a sibling take their own life.
Sometimes you just can't do it anymore. Sometimes you just have to. Sometimes it can just be so brutal that you just have to take some time out. And I never meant for the time out to last so long. I always thought Tiffany and I would find our way back to each other and, you know, and then she killed herself. Sam Briger and Joel Wolfram produced and edited this interview for broadcast.
