Martin Short to Publish Memoir With Harper

Posted on May 14, 2013

Comedian and actor Martin Short has announced plans to publish his memoir with Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. The memoir will be published in 2014. The autobiography is Martin's first book.

Short will discuss his life and his forty-plus years in show business. It will cover his childhood in Hamilton, Canada. It will also cover his early years at SCTV and Saturday Night Live. Short will also discuss his films, including The Three Amigos and Father of the Bride.

Short said in a statement, "Although I've never read a book all the way through, I'm sure excited to write one. And my hope and dream is that in my propensity for honesty and my tendency to reveal raw sexual moments, I will create a hell of a 37 page page-turner. I haven't named my book yet, but I'm toying with the title, If I'd Saved, I Wouldn't Be Writing This."

Update: The title of Short's memoir is I Must Say: My Life As a Humble Comedy Legend.
