Description

Fifty years after Where the Wild Things Are was published comes the last book Maurice Sendak completed before his death in May 2012, My Brother's Book. With influences from Shakespeare and William Blake, Sendak pays homage to his late brother, Jack, whom he credited for his passion for writing and drawing. Pairing Sendak's poignant poetry with his exquisite and dramatic artwork, this book redefines what mature readers expect from Maurice Sendak while continuing the lasting legacy he created over his long, illustrious career. Sendak's tribute to his brother is an expression of both grief and love and will resonate with his lifelong fans who may have read his children's books and will be ecstatic to discover something for them now. Pulitzer Prize-winning literary critic and Shakespearean scholar Stephen Greenblatt contributes a moving introduction.show more

Review quote

Distinguished by its pervasive sense of longing and informed by extraordinary art--some of Sendak's most beautiful--My Brother's Book is a celebration of the enduring love of two brothers. Inviting reading and rereading, Sendak's tribute to his brother is also a final tribute to his own genius.--Booklist (starred review)show more
