  • William GoldmanWilliam Goldman

    We are so very saddened to hear that master storyteller William Goldman has passed away. If you are unfamiliar with Goldman, now is a perfect time to learn about a person who injected something magical into so many films and his own original books, which are nothing short of literary gems. In fact, many people might not realize the extent and influence of the Goldman cannon. As far as Viewers Advisory is concerned, Goldman has written some of the most perfect books with just the right mixture of adventure, humor, beauty, friendship, evil, and romance served up with a sprinkling of the bizarre.
