Maurice Sendak's closest friends gathered in his hospital room _ playwright Tony Kushner, authors Brian Selznick and Gregory Maguire. Kushner brought jellybeans, while Maguire placed a picture of Lewis Carroll on the table beside Sendak's bed.
It's flyaway time for the "Wicked Years" series.
"He began to be honest in the '50s," said "Wicked" author Gregory Maguire, one of Sendak's closest friends. "He was laceratingly honest at a time when few others were."
"The one thing he wasn't uncertain about was his significance," Maguire said Tuesday, hours after Sendak died at age 83.
