“Finding out that I was gay when I was older was a shock and a disappointment. I did not want to be gay. It meant a whole different thing to me – which is really hard to recover now because that’s many years ago. I always objected to it because there is a part of me that is solid Brooklyn and solid conventional and I know that. I can’t escape that. It’s my genetic makeup. It’s who I am. … I have nothing now but praise for my life. I’m not unhappy. I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop them. They leave me and I love them more. … What I dread is the isolation. … There are so many beautiful things in the world which I will have to leave when I die, but I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready.” – children’s author and illustrator Maurice Sendak on being gay and getting old, on NPR’s Fresh Air. (Photo by John Dugdale)
