Goldhagen has published one novel as of early 2006:
*"Family And Other Accidents" (ISBN 0-385-51597-9)

Entertainment Weekly said the book "delicately mines the complexities of how loved ones seem close and far away -- often at the same time -- and how the smallest word uttered has the power to unravel or save. You embrace this book enthusiastically."

People Magazine called the book an "engrossing, beautifully written debut."

Richard Ford, in writing an endorsement on the dust jacket of "Family and Other Accidents", wrote: "Ms. Goldhagen already, at a young age, is a fully self-possessed novelist, in command of large figurations, shrewed intelligence and wit, and a fine eye for the world and the American sentence."
