Demanding authenticity

A touching story about the extraordinary Robin Williams, (as reported in the obituary page of the current edition of The Week):

Apparently, friends described him as either rather reserved, or always “on”, making him a difficult person to get to know. Williams once recalled reading his favourite book, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe to his daughter Zelda.

Not surprisingly, when reading to his kids Williams would normally do all the voices but on this occasion the girl said, “Don’t do any voices. Just read it as yourself.” He complied and she said, “That’s better.”

RIP Mr W – you made the world a brighter place.
