Author David Sedaris has been writing about his partner Hugh Hamrick for years. In a recent column penned for The Guardian, Sedaris has published a photo of Hamrick, alongside a new story about his partner of 23 years.
In the story The One that Got Away, Sedaris decides to ask Hamrick for the first time, how many people he’d slept with before they became a couple.
Here is an excerpt from the piece:
Every man ticked off on his fingers was someone I’d been compared to at one point or another, not overtly – he’s anything but cruel – but surely it happened. Someone kissed better than me. Someone had more stamina, a more seductive voice. I’m confident enough to compete against a dozen of his exes, but he was moving on to the population of a small town.
