This title is an English translation of the Irsih-language novel Gafa.
O Laighleis' highly acclaimed novels tells the horrific and gruelling tale of teenager Alan's slide into the world of drug addiction and his involvement with its murky and danger-filled underworld.
Equally important, Hooked also relates the parents' story: Sandra's world is thrown into turmoil, first by the realisation that her 17-year-old son is in the throes of heroin addiction and then by the discovery of her husband's infidelity. There are no ribbons wrapped around the story here - it is hard, factual and written with sensitivity and skill.
