Maurice Sendak on TV: The clips file

When famous people die, reporters look to their notebooks (or their audio files) for old interviews, and TV people go to the videotape.

Maurice Sendak on TV: The clips file

When famous people die, reporters look to their notebooks (or their audio files) for old interviews, and TV people go to the videotape.

Bill Moyers' people have sent along (see below) what they're calling  "one of the most candid and comprehensive interviews ever with [children's book author] Maurice Sendak," which includes this response to the oft-asked question of what happened to Max, the indelible protagonist of "Where the Wild Things Are":

"It’s such a coy question that I always say, ‘Well, he’s in therapy forever. He has to wear a straitjacket when he’s with his therapist,’” Sendak told Moyers.

Hulu has some other Sendak-on-TV stuff:
