NOT THAT MAN ANYMORE
"An extraordinary and deeply moving account of a woman who lost her husband, Emmy award winner Michael Zaslow to Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS). Hufford has become a prime mover in the battle to eliminate ALS."-Mike Wallace, Cbs Correspondent
"Obviously I knew how the book would end, but as I was reading I was completely mesmerized. Susan Hufford writes so beautifully and poetically. It felt like I was reading a great mystery. The book simply took my breath away. I applaud Hufford for her truth, honesty and humor and for her passion to show the world that there was a man in that ravaged body, and he had, and continues to have-a powerful soul. This book must be read!"-Amy Schor Ferris, Author & Columnist
Famous for his portrayals of the vicious Roger Thorpe and the enigmatic David Renaldi, Michael Zaslow was at the top of his game when a mysterious vocal symptom propelled him on an odyssey that led to traditional medical resources and to the very non-traditional. Hufford, a novelist and psychotherapist interweaves Zaslow's experience and her own along with observations from friends, family, physicians and fans. This compelling mosaic offers a unique perspective of illness and of the enduring power of love that reaches beyond the boundaries of life as we know it. Not That Man Anymore is life affirming, passionate and resonant with hope for all of us.
