Aldous Huxley: Brave New World
Reader Submission: Title and Redesign by Adwoa Agyepong.
On today’s Fresh Air, Maurice Sendak talks about his latest children’s book, Bumble-ardy: “When I did Bumble-ardy, I was so intensely aware of death. 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.”
