Toxicology by Jessica Hagedorn June 12 2011
By Barbara Swan - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
"Toxicology" is a masterpiece. Hagedorn creates fresh characters that are raunchy, funny and ultimately heartbreaking. She's the master of form, suspense and knows how to nail a detail. If you haven't read Hagedorn's earlier books, start with "Toxicology" and work backwards. She's at the peak of her skills, so buy this book. You'll love it.

Mysterious and Powerful June 9 2013
By Crumbles Delorean - Published on
Format: Paperback
Jessica Hagedorn brings New York City to life in the novel TOXICOLOGY. The characters are so alive and real. Interesting people who are not easy to classify. This is easily one of the best books she has written. To see a writer at the top of her game is a pleasure. This is a novel only a true lover of NYC could write. The book is a combination commentary on life in the first half of the twenty first century, the nature of celebrity, a rumination of the meaning of passion for life, art, love, and the dream of making it in the big city.

If I had to assemble a reading list for someone who had never been to New York City, I would put this book on the list. The main story and subplots are woven together and there is no fat, no excess. Just pure story and the need to turn the page.

Sometimes I am walking down the street and I think I catch a glimpse of Mimi or Eleanor. There are pockets of the city that burn bright in this novel. Pick up the book and get lost in this world.

Disappointing Jan. 8 2014
By Sunrise Susie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Depressed characters leading depressing lives. Plus, confusing disjointed structure. How did this book get published? Take a pass. Wish I HAD.

Very Disappointing March 20 2013
By D. Bertola - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thought this a terrible effort. Saw no value in it; can't figure out why the author chose to write this book. What did she want to accomplish?
