More from the 1982 interview of Maurice Sendak and Dr. Seuss by Glenn Edward Sadler.
When asked if their characters lived with them all the time, Maurice Sendak said he’d probably go mad if they did and that he kept writing stories to get rid of them.
Do you find yourself using the same characters in every story, only with different names? How do you feel about running into them in real life? Dr. Seuss admitted he wouldn’t show up to a dinner party with his characters!
