Ladies and gentlemen, I just listened to two of the most hilarious interviews with children’s authors ever in the world.
Please, if you know what’s good for you, watch:
Maurice Sendak on the Colbert Report
and then listen to:
Jack Gantos on Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me.
Hilarious interviews ~ both of them. I’ve never been a fan of Maurice Sendak’s work, but his interview with Colbert was so dang funny.
I actually caught Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me on Sunday. I thought they were kidding about Gantos having been in prison. Boy was I surprised. Clever show/clever interview.
