This poet has a goofy, unorthodox view of the world which she exposes whether we like it or not. Her work can be raw and vulnerable, but it is always readable and full of the wonder of life. This is her first full-length title. Everyone who loves poetry should go out and buy one for themselves and one for their best friend.

Beautiful, gritty, raw, intense, soft, lyrical, current, humorous, bold, melodic, witty, charming, and brilliant. Caroline Hagood is a beyond brilliant poet that has an incredible talent for stringing words together in a unique, beautiful, thoughtful, and interesting way. Cannot wait to read more from this very talented poet.

Caroline Hagood is an emerging talent. Her work manages to be honest and vulnerable while staying measured with precise word choices and unique (sometimes harrowing) imagery. Taking on subjects from the mundane to the magical, each poem is startlingly effective and touching. Remember the name, this writer is bound to go far.

Format: Paperback
Adventurous, agile and inventive poems that blend a romantic lyricism with a witty, edgy contemporary sensibility; charming, original, deep. The arrangement of the poems into a narrative arc is especially impressive.

Format: Paperback
I am not a person who typically likes poetry as I often find it pretentious. My friend recommended this book to me and I was truly shocked at how much I enjoyed it. The poems are moving, full of character, and the author's voice feels genuine, the words unforced. I am looking forward to future works by the author as she is a singular talent.
