About the Book:
"Is there anybody that Hawk Koch hasn't worked with? Magic Time should be required reading for three types of people. One, those starting in show business, two, those that have been in show business for a long time, and three, everyone else. Like every movie Hawk has made, Magic Time is a fascinating journey of self-identity. I love this book." --Mike Myers, Actor, Writer, and Director
"Magic Time recounts what I remember about Hawk: someone who never took an opportunity for granted and worked hard to achieve success in his own right. Plus, he was a lot of the fun, and, as the book reflects, we had some memorable adventures."-- Robert Redford, Oscar-winning Actor & Director, Founder of the Sundance Institute & Film Festival
"Hawk Koch is without a doubt one of the great Hollywood storytellers I've ever known. His adventures in the movie business are so funny and so incredible that I re-tell stories from his career more than ones from my own. And his own personal journey is as heartfelt as it gets." -- Edward Norton, Actor, Writer, and Director
"I can personally relate to this moving journey of a man learning to step out from under a father's shadow. But Magic Time is also filled with fun, surprising stories that only a deep insider could tell."-- Jane Fonda, Oscar-winning Actress, Bestselling Author
