Martin Short Is Writing a Memoir


Living comedy legend Martin Short is getting ready to write his first book. The NY Times reports that Short has inked a deal with HarperCollins to write a memoir that will cover his movie and TV career, his friendships with other well-known comedians and actors, and his 30-year marriage to Nancy Dolman, who passed away in 2010. Short recently starred in the NBC pilot Mulaney from Lorne Michaels and SNL writer John Mulaney, which the network bafflingly opted not to order to series, and he’s currently filming a small part in director Paul Thomas Anderson’s movie adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel Inherent Vice. “Although I’ve never read a book all the way through, I’m sure excited to write one,” Short joked in a statement. He added, “I haven’t named my book yet, but I’m toying with the title If I’d Saved, I Wouldn’t Be Writing This.” Hopefully, he gets to stick with that title, as it is pretty great.
