Robin Williams

Biography announced

27 Aug, 2014

Publisher Henry Holt and Co. announces that it will publish Williams’ biography. The book, as yet untitled, will be written by New York Times culture writer Dave Itzkoff, who profiled Williams for the newspaper in 2009 and wrote his obituary, and edited by executive editor Paul Golob in order to ‘provide the definitive, comprehensive account of Williams’s life.’ Itzkoff:

Robin Williams was a cultural hero of mine, and in the encounters and interactions I was able to share with him, he was always gentle and generous, humane and thoughtful and hilarious.
