PART TWO OF MAURICE SENDAK ON THE COLBERT REPORT!
HILARIOUS! What a goof troup, these two! I love how Sendak is wearing New Balance sneakers, and when Colbert says, "I don't believe in monkeys."

"When I did Bumble-ardy, I was so intensely aware of death," he says. "Eugene, my friend and partner, was dying here in the house when I did Bumble-ardy. I did Bumble-ardy to save myself. I did not want to die with him. I wanted to live as any human being does. But there's no question that the book was affected by what was going on here in the house. ... Bumble-ardy was a combination of the deepest pain and the wondrous feeling of coming into my own. And it took a long time. It took a very long time."
