dancing around like they were on lithium Leonard Marcus introduces each author and gives a summary of their strength as an artist in the field before launching into a uestion and answer format I wasn t sure I would like this but found his uestionseally interesting and the answers unexpected Sometimes he d ask such a sophisticated uestion about the work I wasn t sure if it was the illustrator answering Other times such as with the William Steig interview Marcus compares his book Amos Boris with William Blake s The Tyger Steig was so flattered and excited never thinking of the two as connected It is obvious Marcus did a ton of Biopower: Foucault and Beyond research before his interviews The chapters conclude with.

the subjects were 
subjects were less serious stuff he seemed to get out of them Of those though Maurice Sendak told some Nestle Toll House Recipe Collection really interesting and moving stories about his Jewish heritage and the way he incorporated hiseal life into his surreal storiesButyeah Basically picture books as an art form are an interesting and puzzling phenomenon and I want to ead about them on a critical level This was a good start to that but yeah More authorial intent is desired.
