Caroline Hagood's new novel is now available for pre-order! https://www.hangingloosepress.com/new-titles/

Mary-Louise Parker calls Hagood’s work “profoundly unique and honest…somehow executed with an astonishing lack of ego. She will break your heart with her naked sincerity; a masterful, singular writer who sheds light with every page,” and Rachel Lyon, author of Self-Portrait with Boy, declares the novel a "rollicking feminist fantasy...irreverent, well-informed, dirty and smart, this novel is an absolute party."

“Hagood ably plays ventriloquist to Jackie and Valerie, narrating each of the characters, in turn, with elegant, elegiac monologues.” —Kirkus Reviews

In GHOSTS OF AMERICA, on one unforgettable night, a sexist male novelist undergoes a peculiar transformation after being haunted by the ghosts of the women he has miswritten: Jackie Kennedy and Valerie Solanas.

GHOSTS OF AMERICA will be coming out October 15, 2021.
