Praise for Toxicology:

“A razor-sharp, refreshingly unsentimental portrayal of New York artists—selfish, irresponsible, and brilliant—and the evolution of feminism.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) 

“Out of jump cuts and close-ups, Hagedorn has composed a jazzy, stingingly smart tragicomedy of toxic substances, hate, and delusions; hustle and creativity; obsession and passion.” —Booklist (starred review) 

“This is an eclectic mix of differing voices, dream sequences, interviews, and snippets of memoir, as well as straight narrative all overlaid with Hagedorn’s darkly humorous perspective… Recommended for readers of edgy, urban fiction.” —Library Journal

“A peek into a peculiarly alluring world of art, fame and mortality.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Hagedorn lets the emotional consequences of loss and waste freely expand the parameters of her novel in order to accurately express the wounded heart at play with love, loyalty and making art. When hope is located in the past, and the future not imaginable, her story’s telling relies on freedom, risk and innovation. Funny, sad and without phony resolution, Toxicology just tells like it is.” —Sarah Schulman, author of Conflict is Not Abuse and Let the Record Show
