Fuelled by Tom 'Hookie' Nash's dark humour and razor-sharp wit, Hook, Line & Sinner is an 'anti-inspirational' take on disability, a wild ride of survival and a case study in redefining life's limitations on your own terms.
Tom 'Hookie' Nash has spent his adult life mesmerising audiences around the world, either with his thought-provoking philosophies on such topics as Fear, Innovation, Luck and Happiness or with his hypnotic DJ sets. However, before his career had even begun, Tom was given a less than 10 per cent chance of survival after contracting a deadly disease at the age of nineteen, resulting in him losing both his arms and legs. Nash not only went on to survive, but to thrive, taking on life with nothing more than a pair of prosthetic hooks and a dark sense of humour.
In a world where inspiration porn belies the true intrigue and hard-won lessons
gained from overcoming adversity, Hook, Line & Sinner is Tom's visceral yet revelatory memoir of what it's like to survive a life-threatening illness against all odds and come out the other side burning to live, fuelled by curiosity, steeped in debauchery, driven to create, and bold in his decision not to become a Paralympian.
