AN ILLUSTRATED TALK WITH MAURICE SENDAK

Illustration by Christoph Neimann

Unlike millions of people, I heard Maurice Sendak’s interview on “Fresh Air” with Terry Gross for the first time the other day. I am sharing this interview, as I feel sorry for the millions of other people who have missed out on this delight.

The interview is poignant and sentimental. What makes it extra special, are of course the illustrations by The New York Times' Christoph Niemann, inspired by Sendak. There is clearly such a personal connection to Sendak's characters and message.
