Maurice Sendak was a badass

A delightfully tough old cuss, in fact, who gave as good as he got in this interview with Stephen Colbert, and made for a fascinating subject in Tell Them Anything You Want, the  Spike Jonze-directed documentary in which he speaks rather poignantly about having to keep his homosexuality secret for decades for fear of how it might affect his career as a children’s book author. Everybody who was ever enchanted and just a tiny bit terrified by Where the Wild Things Are bids a fond farewell.
