  • SPIKE JONZE: OK?

  • MAURICE SENDAK: Yup.

  • Do I--

  • SPIKE JONZE: Yeah, just say, I'm Maurice Sendak.

  • We're out at my barn.

  • MAURICE SENDAK: Oh, OK.

  • I'm Maurice Sendak.

  • We are now sitting in my barn.

  • It's where I come and work when I want

  • it to be very quiet.

  • There's no radio here, there's no TV, there's nothing here.

  • Just me and Herman, the German Shepherd, who says nothing.

  • He doesn't critique my work, doesn't cluck his tongue.

  • When he has to take a leak, he just tells you, straight out.

  • Well, I've had infinite amount of dogs, but

  • Herman is the best.

  • And also he's the best trained.

  • Because of my legs and back, he walks slowly,

  • he looks after me.

  • Aside from her, he's the only thing that makes me happy.

  • SPIKE JONZE: Aside from Lynn?

  • Does Lynn live with you?

  • MAURICE SENDAK: Yes.

  • She's the woman in my life.

  • She is the only woman in my life.

  • LYNN CAPONERA: That's not true.

  • You have a lot of women in your life.

  • MAURICE SENDAK: Yes.

  • LYNN CAPONERA: Women love Maurice.

  • Maurice gets proposed to at least four or

  • five times a year.

  • MAURICE SENDAK: It's terrifying.

  • MAURICE SENDAK: I want to marry her, too, but it's not

  • likely we'll get it together.

  • CATHERINE KEENER: Hi, Maurice.

  • I'm practicing.

  • Hi, Maurice.

  • Did you have brothers or sisters?

  • They were wonderful, truly wonderful people.

  • CATHERINE KEENER: Girls or boys?

  • MAURICE SENDAK: One brother, one sister.

  • I'm the baby.

  • CATHERINE KEENER: You are the baby.

  • I could tell.

  • You seem like the baby in the line-up.

  • SPIKE JONZE: How do you tell?

  • MAURICE SENDAK: How do you tell?

  • CATHERINE KEENER: I don't know.

  • I just feel it.

  • SPIKE JONZE: I was telling Keener how a lot of your

  • family and experiences with your family have wound up in a

  • lot of your work.

  • Is that true?

  • MAURICE SENDAK: No.

  • SPIKE JONZE: No?

  • You told me that--

  • MAURICE SENDAK: I make up a lot of shit.

  • But I can't tell the real story.

SPIKE JONZE: OK?
