Sedaris, who is, for the record, not a lesbian, has been a bunny person since the nineties. She’s had two of the little critters over the years. The first, Tattletale, was an impulse buy after gazing into a pet shop window. She adopted the second, a black-and-white Mini Rex named Dusty, who passed away recently at the age of 12. “I’m still in mourning,” said Sedaris while sitting on the floor of her Greenwich Village apartment, the walls of which boast bunny paintings. Toy rabbits that resemble her own can be found on a shelf, and in the bedroom she keeps two urns with her little angels’ remains. Sometimes, she writes them letters, telling them she misses them or how her day was. She’s waiting a year until she gets another. “This time,” she said, “I think I’ll get two.”
