Maurice Sendak

Maurice Sendak sure contributed a lot to my childhood with his wonderful books.

“My books are really books that are impressed and in love with the memory of comics and how important they were to me as a child… I didn’t live near any famous person, I didn’t see Michelangelo go to work in the morning. I just lived in Brooklyn, where everything was ordinary — and yet, enticing and exciting and bewildering. The magic of childhood, the strangeness of childhood, the uniqueness that makes us see things that other people don’t see…”

Best known for Where the Wild Things Are, This documentary produced by Tate Modern examines the man behind the drawings many have come to love.
