When Robin Williams committed suicide on August 11, 2014, the question at the forefront of our minds was: Why?”
As a personal and professional friend of Williams for more than 35 years, comedian and actor Bob Zmuda is perhaps best-equipped to answer that question. Robin Williams: An Intimate Portrait is an insightful account of the evolution, making, and unraveling of one of the most original talents in show business. Zmuda recalls Williams’s sudden rise to fame on television and film, his cofounding Comic Relief with Whoopi Goldberg and Billy Crystal, and his lifelong struggles with drugs, alcohol, and depression.
Drawing not only from the author’s own encounters and recollections, the biography is bolstered by the candid recollections of many comics, actors, musicians, celebrities, friends, family, and others who knew Williams well.
