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.

Mary-Louise Parker has called 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, calls the novel a “rollicking feminist fantasy . . . irreverent, well-informed, dirty and smart, this novel is an absolute party.”  


Caroline Hagood is an Assistant Professor of Literature, Writing and Publishing and Director of Undergraduate Writing at St. Francis College in Brooklyn. She has published two books of poetry, Lunatic Speaks (FutureCycle Press), and Making Maxine’s Baby (Hanging Loose), and one book-length essay, Ways of Looking at a Woman (Hanging Loose). Her writing has appeared in The Kenyon Review, the Huffington Post, the Guardian, Salon, and the Economist.
