Fresh Air Remembers Author Maurice Sendak

leave a comment

A deliciously delightful, bittersweet collection of interviews with Maurice Sendak by Fresh Air’s Terry Gross. The interviews, individually are quite good, but taken in sequence they offer a beautiful insight into the mind and heart of a children’s author who wasn’t just writing for children. In its entirety these interviews are funny, sad, and beautiful. If the last thing he says to Terry Gross doesn’t just about break your heart I’ll have to question your humanity.

UPDATE: This Fresh Air interview combines segments from several other of Gross’ interviews with Sendak. If you scroll down the page you’ll see links to those complete interviews.
