Re: Maurice Sendak, gone to Where the Wild Things Are
While I don't subscribe to the deaths-come-in-threes bit (I think it has to do with when we stop counting), could there be a stranger trio than Adam Yauch, George "Goober" Lindsey, and Maurice Sendak?
I loved his writing, which spurred the imagination to wander on to wilder and darker places. "In the Night Kitchen" was probably my favorite.
Edge trilogy, by me.
