“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
“I found the book profoundly moving, and insightful about not only the entertainment industry, but human nature. Bravo and congratulations!”—Gale Anne Hurd, Producer, Terminator and The Walking Dead
“This book is more than just a great Hollywood memoir. Hawk Koch shares his story with us in a funny, touching, and vulnerable way in contrast to the glitz and glamor of the show business life he leads. If you want to hear a story about what Hollywood is really like read this book. It’s a winner.”—Mark Gordon, Producer of Saving Private Ryan, Grey’s Anatomy, and Criminal Minds"Hawk brought a special type of leadership to the Academy while he was President because he viewed the film community as one, all equally important in the collective effort of getting a movie made. One of his greatest talents is making work fun. Optimistic, energetic, he moved the Academy forward while never losing sight of his first love: the movies and the people who make them. He gives readers an inspired and honest view of filmmaking and our filmmaking community."
