Nothing would put me beside her the moment she died. I watched him drive away. I took it off and tied it to the frame of my pack, so it would dangle over my shoulder when I hiked. Move around, be nomadic, make each day a new horizon. Gina helps him run the business in addition to keeping house. She gave me the draft and I thought it was incredible.

Photograph: Tim Knox for the Guardian Maurice Sendak looks like one of his own creations: beady eyes, pointy eyebrows, the odd monsterish tuft of hair and a reputation for fierceness that makes you tip-toe up the path of his beautiful house in Connecticut like a child in a fairytale. Bouncing onto the bed, then onto the floor. My mother was forty-five. I prayed and prayed, and then I faltered.

He listens to Schubert"a darling boy", and his hero Mozart. McCandless evades this request, telling Franz that they'll discuss it when he returns from Alaska. When my mother asked him for more morphine, she asked for it in a way that I have never heard anyone ask for anything.

I was ravenous for love. Not everybody likes it, that's fine. William Blake set the standard, jumping up from his death bed at the last minute to start singing. Leif slept a few feet away on his own smaller platform, and our mother was in a bed on the floor below, joined by Eddie on the weekends.
