A new illustrated title from the acclaimed cartoonist Tony Husband and his son Paul, looking at the father-son relationship during Paul's battle with heroin addiction.

When the Husband family realised that their son Paul was addicted to heroin, they did everything they could to help him but it seemed that every step in the right direction would be followed by another relapse as Paul lied to them, stole from them, and come close to losing his life.

This illustrated title from award-winning cartoonist Tony Husband tells the tale of those dark days as they worked as a family to get Paul into the right sort of supportive environment where he could truly recover from his dangerous addiction, and move from that dark place to a brighter future.

This inspiring and compelling story will appeal to anyone who has struggled with an addictive disorder, or any families or friends who have had to support someone through such a situation. Anyone who had their heart broken by Tony's Take Care, Son will be similarly moved by FROM A DARK PLACE.
