Roger Ebert to Write a Memoir

Film critic and Twitter god Roger Ebert has announced that he will publish his memoir in the fall of 2011. According to the New York Times, “the as-yet-untitled book will cover his relationship with his friend and fellow `At the Movies’ co-host, Gene Siskel, as well as his struggle with thyroid cancer.”

Cancer may have robbed Ebert of his voice, but he manages to be extremely vocal on Twitter. You can follow him @ebertchicago to hear his opinions on everything from movies to Sarah Palin. Sample tweets: “Rinse. Repeat. You will find these simple instructions apply to many delightful activities” and “Dear TeePees: No need to tweet that you want me to die of cancer. You fought Health Care Reform. I got the message.”
