Gandolfini does Sendak

In a collaboration between two artists I really respect and have terrific affection for, here is  In The Night Kitchen, read by James Gandolfini.

Gandolfini's voice has always been one of my favorite things about him, and it brings to life Sendak's wild, whimsical, helter-skelter words in an accessible, easy way that's wonderfully paternal. I really enjoy . . .  especially his New York twang saying, "Til it looked OK."
