Fun book recommendation of the day
From his stand up comedy riffs to his role in Mork and Mindy and his Academy Award-winning performance in Good Will Hunting, Robin Williams was a singularly innovative and beloved comedian and entertainer. Robin, the book written by the New York Times culture reporter Dave Itzkoff, is the definitive biography and a compelling portrait of one of Americaís most beloved and misunderstood entertainers, Robin Williams.
In this revelatory biography, Itzkoff shows Williamsís comic brilliance masked a deep well of conflicting emotions and self-doubt, which he drew upon in his comedy and in celebrated films. Itzkoff also shows how Williams struggled with addiction and depression. Topics he discussed openly while performing and during interviews.
