In 1993, Liz Tilberis had it all. Hired as editor in chief of Harper's Bazaar, she had moved to America with her husband and two small children and presided aver the dazzling relaunch of the magazine, instantly becoming one of the most prominent figures in international media and fashion circles. Then, all at once, the rug was pulled out from under her. On the eve of her holiday party, whose guests included fashion designers such as Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, and Calvin Klein, Tilberis was diagnosed with third-stage ovarian cancer.
Nearly four years later, Tilberis is alive and well -- a survivor. In No Time to Die, she gives us an extraordinary account of her career in high fashion, as well as the remarkable story of her battle with cancer. From her first job as an assistant at British Vogue to her big break -- crossing the Atlantic to revitalize Harper's Bazaar -- Tilberis brings to life nearly thirty years at the heart of one of the world's hottest industries. And when illness struck just as she'd achieved her greatest triumph, the same exuberance and audacity that had fueled her brilliant career helped her beat the odds. Tilberis believes her cancer was caused by the fertility drugs she took years ago -- and that she survived only because she sought out a promising but risky experimental treatment.
With its fascinating inside look at the fashion world and gripping medical drama, No Time to Die is a mesmerizing read.
