I Maurice Sendak

Even though he'd probably prefer if I said I hated him, like a proper misanthrope.

And, btw, I really get just the most ridiculous thrill every time I find out that someone who shaped my childhood is queer. Same as when I find out someone is a big old feminist or progressive. It's amazing how often I seemed to be drawn most passionately, even as a wee thing, to that created by My People.
