DESCRIPTION

WINNER OF THE 2015 COLLAGIST CHAPBOOK CONTEST

Provincial cineastes sit down to a hundred-year-long movie. The reader of an immense Hungarian novel descends the quiet corridors of its pages. An amateur archaeologist fashions a dramatic shipwreck out of a pair or iron keys. These Stories blend chemistry textbook with family memoir, the history of ordinary objects with desolate loves, creating literary hybrids of surprising form and flickering passion.

PRAISE FOR ORIGINS AND OTHER STORIES AND ANGELA WOODWARD

“Woodward's Collection, Origins and Other Stories, is incomparable. Each sentence is its own universe, creating a cosmos of unparalleled territory...I want to tack every line of this collection to my walls. Woodward's genius straddles centuries with her staggering language, philosophical layers, and the alchemy she bleeds onto every page. This is inspiration to feed lifetimes.”

—Megan Tuite, author of Lined Up Like Scars

“Woodward has a way with the intentional meander, the stories that blossom into stories, that morph and shift and come together like the earth's crust itself.”

—Amber Sparks, author of May We Shed These Human Bodies and The Unfinished World

“Angela Woodward in Natural Wonders knows waht the grand satirists knew about the great tectonic paradigm shift to this new way of knowing. Her deadpan take on the scientific deadpan is expansive and microscopic, hilarious and heartbreaking.”  

—Michael Martone, author of Winesburg, Indiana and Four for a Quarter
