Publisher Henry Holt announces a biography on Robin Williams

By Greta Heggeness,

As friends, family, and fans mourn the passing of Robin Williams, he is remembered for the huge list of classic films he leaves behind, including Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting, Jumanji, and Hook.

However, when the news of Williams’ death was announced, we began to realize the comedian’s personal life is a mystery.

All that is about to change, though. According to The Hollywood Reporter, publisher Henry Holt has announced that Dave Itzkoff, a writer for the New York Times, will be creating a biography of the Mrs. Doubtfire actor.

Holt also revealed that the book-tribute to the famous comedian will be “the definitive, comprehensive account of Williams’s life.”

"Robin Williams was a cultural hero of mine,” Itzkoff said in a statement, says MTV. “In the encounters and interactions I was able to share with him, he was always gentle and generous, humane and thoughtful and hilarious.”

The name and release date of the biography have yet to be announced.
