New Fuse 8 n’ Kate Episode: In the Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak
It’s been a little while but we’ve a new episode up and running. I’m so pleased to say that my podcast Fuse 8 n’ Kate which I do with my sister went in a distinctly Sendakian direction. We delve deep into the oddities of the book, some of the more peculiar theories that surround it, and also the many things people have said about it over the years. I may go off on a rant against librarian-bashing in the course of things. Does this book deserved to be considered a “classic”? Find out!
If you feel the sound quality is a bit different, by the way, we had to rely on our back-up mic this time around. No worries. It was a one time deal.
Here are some things mentioned in the podcast:
- Little Nemo in Slumberland
- Dear Genius: The Letters of Ursula Nordstrom, edited by Leonard Marcus
- The Naked Truth: Librarians Stood By Maurice Sendak, No Stranger to Controversy by K.T. Horning
- This Librarian Finally Looked at His Copy of ‘In the Night Kitchen’. What He Discovered Shocked Him by Travis Jonker
- Comic Book Legal Defense Fund – Case Study: In the Night Kitchen
- zefrank1 and his videos
- Rolling Stone – ‘Steven Universe’: How Rebecca Sugar Turned TV’s Most Empathetic Cartoon Into an Empire
