This extraordinary biography written with the generous cooperation of the Henson family covers the full arc of Henson s all too brief life from his childhood in Leland Mississippi through the years of burgeoning fame in Washington D C New York and London to the decade of international celebrity that preceded his untimely death at age fifty three Drawing on hundreds of hours of new interviews with Jim Henson s family friends and closest collaborators as well as unprecedented access to private family and company archives including never before seen interviews business documents and Henson s private letters Brian Jay Jones explores the creation of the Muppets Henson s contributions to Sesame Street and Saturday Night Live and his nearly ten year campaign to bring The Muppet Show to television Jones provides the imaginative context for Henson s non Muppet projects including the richly imagined worlds of The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth as well as fascinating misfires like Henson s dream of opening an inflatable psychedelic nightclub or of staging an elaborate all puppet Broadway show .
