Reviews

"Sadie Hoagland's stories are hard and bright as the twenty-first century, but with reflections that radiate into subtle chiaroscuro. She's a startlingly fresh new writer; American Grief in Four Stages is a debut that will be remembered."
Madison Smartt Bell, author of All Souls' Rising


"A captivating debut collection probes the trauma of being human. . . . assured, haunting, and deeply empathetic."
Kirkus (starred review)


"This terrifying, brave collection takes the sting out of what happens when the worst has already occurred. Even in their loss, its broken characters find ways to try and explain the unexplainable to themselves."
Foreword Reviews


"Terrifyingly true and dangerously perceptive, Sadie Hoagland's provocative fictions deliver us to moments of maximum chaos."
Melanie Rae Thon, author of Silence and Song
"As riveting as short fiction gets."
Jacob M. Appel, author of The Amazing Mr. Morality
