With malice toward all. Maurice Sendak’s feelings on:

Ebooks: “I hate them. It’s like making believe there’s another kind of sex. There isn’t another kind of sex. There isn’t another kind of book! A book is a book is a book.”
New York: “You get pushed and harassed and people grope you. It’s too tumultuous, it’s too crazy!”
The American right: “These Republican schnooks would be comical if they weren’t not funny.”
Rupert Murdoch: “His name should be what everything is called now.” But he publishes you! “Yes! Harpers. He owns Harpers and I guess the rest of the world, too. He represents how bad things have become. But I don’t know a better house. They’re all in trouble. They’re all terrible.”
Salman Rushdie, who once gave him a terrible review in the New York Times: “That flaccid fuckhead. He was detestable. I called up the Ayatollah, nobody knows that.”
Roald Dahl: “The cruelty in his books is off-putting. Scary guy. I know he’s very popular but what’s nice about this guy? He’s dead, that’s what’s nice about him.”
Stephen King: “Bullshit.”
Gwyneth Paltrow: “I can’t stand her.”
[Guardian]


(One of the greatest interviews. Ever.)
