No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality
Michael J. Fox
In his fourth memoir published in 2020, Michael uses his trademark sense of humor to share 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.
There are many words to describe Michael J. Fox. Actor. Husband. Father. Activist. But readers of Always Looking Up will soon add another to the list: Optimist. Michael writes about the hard-won perspective that helped him see challenges as opportunities.
Combining his trademark ironic sensibility and keen sense of the absurd, he recounts his life -- from his childhood in a small town in western Canada to his meteoric rise in film and television which made him a worldwide celebrity.
