Is there ever an appropriate time to look back at the life and legacy of Robin Williams without feeling sad at how it all ended?
Whether you’re a “too soon” sort of person or not, this summer you’re getting two chances to remember Robin, with a new HBO documentary and a biography of the late great comedian out.
The documentary, Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind, premieres July 16, 2018, on HBO. “You’re only given a little spark of madness and if you lose that, you’re nothing.”
There’s also a new biography written by Dave Itzkoff from the New York Times, already out and available to read. In it, Itzkoff talks to so many people who knew Williams well, and wouldn’t you know it, few of them wonder if they really ever did.
