From Lance Bangs and Spike Jonze comes a deeply moving tribute to Maurice Sendak, a seminal talent whose conflicts with success and lifelong obsession with death have subtly influenced his work. Sendak was best known for WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, which he wrote twelve years into his career as a writer and illustrator. The WILD THINGS book would go on to become one of the most beloved and critically lauded children's books of all time and, much to Sendak's chagrin, would come to define his career.
