More Sendak

Sendak, who was never at a loss for words, told The New Yorker's Art Spiegelman in 1993, "People say, 'Oh, Mr. Sendak. I wish I were in touch with my childhood self, like you!'

I say, 'You are in touch, lady--you're mean to your kids, you treat your husband like shit, you lie, you're selfish... That is your childhood self!"
