“I am a huge Sutton Foster fan and, as of the pandemic, a huge knitter so this book intrigued me on many levels. I both love and hate memoirs from alive and relatively young people... I am a nosy nellie who loves the inside glimpse but also have pause at the fact that this person has so much life left to live and this book is hopefully only part 1. However, Foster's lens of crafting really made this book about coping and less of personal memoir. When I first picked this book up, I though I wanted juicy tidbits from behind the scenes of Foster's Broadway career. While we did get some nuggets, we mostly got an overarching and heartwarming tale of a fraught mother/daughter relationship that is still healing. It was gorgeous and sad and I loved Foster's perspective of crafting and how certain projects highlight certain points in her life. The crafting is also what connects her to her mother, whom she lost before any reconciliation could really happen. The audiobook, narrated by the author herself, was particularly moving because you can hear the emotion in Foster's voice. An absolutely devastating and yet delightful book that leaves you with hope and a creative drive.”Kimi,

From the 2-time Tony Award-winner and the star of TV’s Younger, funny and intimate stories and reflections about how crafting has kept her sane while navigating the highs and lows of family, love, and show business (and how it can help you, too).
Whether she’s playing an “age-defying” book editor on television or dazzling audiences on the Broadway stage, Sutton Foster manages to make it all look easy. How? Crafting. From the moment she picked up a cross stitch needle to escape the bullying chorus girls in her early performing days, she was hooked. Cross stitching led to crocheting, crocheting led to collages, which led to drawing, and so much more. Channeling her emotions into her creations centered Sutton as she navigated the significant moments in her life and gave her tangible reminders of her experiences. Now, in this charming and poignant collection, Sutton shares those moments, including her fraught relationship with her agoraphobic mother; a painful divorce splashed on the pages of the tabloids; her struggles with fertility; the thrills she found on the stage during hit plays like Thoroughly Modern Millie, Anything Goes, and Violet; her breakout TV role in Younger; and the joy of adopting her daughter, Emily. Accompanying the stories, Sutton has included crochet patterns, recipes, and so much more!
Witty and poignant, Hooked will leave readers entertained as well as inspire them to pick up their own cross stitch needles and paintbrushes.
