Maurice Sendak, the renowned children's author of "Where the Wild Things Are," "In the Night Kitchen" and "Outside Over There," died Tuesday. He was 83. Tonight at 9, we present a special rebroadcast of The Diane Rehm Show, featuring an 1991 interview with Sendak. They talked about his life and work, including the paperback version of E.T.A. Hoffman's Nutcracker, with interruptive illustrations by Maurice Sendak. In the interview, Sendak discussed his difficult childhood, the pain of losing friends and his time working at the toy store, FAO Schwarz.
