Join Michael J. Fox live, to celebrate the release of No Time Like the Future – his deeply personal life story.
“Filled with humorous and thoughtful anecdotes and reflections, the book offers insights into a man who knows struggle all too well, but refuses to let it get in the way of living.”
“A moving account of resilience and hope.”
“For a certain consumer of Generation X pop culture, Michael J. Fox calls to mind ‘Family Ties’ in prime time, ‘Back to the Future’ in movie theaters, interviews in Tiger Beat. The energy that made him such a riveting presence onscreen comes through in his book.”
In No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality, Michael shares personal stories and observations about illness and health, aging, the strength of family and friends, and how our perceptions about time affect the way we approach mortality. Thoughtful and moving, but with Fox’s trademark sense of humor, his book provides a vehicle for reflection about our lives, our loves, and our losses.
Running through the narrative is the drama of the medical madness Fox recently experienced, that included his daily negotiations with the Parkinson’s disease he’s had since 1991, and a spinal cord issue that necessitated immediate surgery. His challenge to learn how to walk again, only to suffer a devastating fall, nearly caused him to ditch his trademark optimism and “get out of the lemonade business altogether.”
