DiTerlizzi's Essay on The Lost Sendak Hobbit

L.A. Times, Friday 25 March 2011

In the not-to-be-missed category, be sure to catch Tony DiTerlizzi's essay on Maurice Sendak's adaptation of Tolkien's The Hobbit from Friday's L.A. Times.  No anxiety of influence here, people, just one awesome mythopoet writing about another awesome mythopoet's work on a third, perhaps most awesome of all the mythopoets -- together with a warning to editors everywhere not to screw up awesome things.  Pass the Kleenexes and the laurels and a copy on to friends.  Thanks for this bit of archaeology, Tony!

I hope to have more on the relevance of the L.A. Times to our interests in the near future.
