Andrew Purcell visits Maurice Sendak’s home:
In the studio, Sendak’s red cashmere cardigan is draped over his chair. His slippers are under the desk. Typed pages of an unfinished story about a stolen nose are arranged next to the Caran d’Ache pencils and cheap Pelikan Gouache paints he used his whole career. There are dozens of Mickey Mouses (Mickey Mice?) and a few scattered Wild Things, frozen in motion and monstrously alive.
