Angela Woodward's new book with Ravenna, End of the Fire Cult (following The Human Mind), examines culture and change, while also telling the story of the waning days of a modern marriage...... A sample: Three years ago my husband gave me two-thirds of an exceptionally beautiful and sacred mountain. I disputed whether he owned it in the first place, but I accepted through treaty his offer of the majority portion. This opening to the book, this gift, is only the first volley in the border dispute between two countries a husband and wife have each imagined for themselves. When a third country threatens to invade both Marmoral and Belgrave, the couple must decide how to defend themselves.

Angela Woodward is also the author of The Human Mind; She lives in Madison, Wisconsin.Review:
Faith and fire twine and two cities emerge from the smoke, growing more familiar with each page. An arresting work. --Amelia Gray, author of AM/PM and Museum of the Weird
Angela Woodward's End of the Fire Cult possesses a peculiar magic that's quite unlike anything I've recently read. Commuting effortlessly between interior and exterior worlds, spinning narratives in a prose that is always poetically apt, Woodward introduces us to the border disputes between two countries that a husband and wife have imagined and strategically revise, adapting, building and destroying as their marriage struggles onward.... End of the Fire Cult is deeply strange and yet hauntingly familiar, and Angela Woodward's stunning voice seems both contemporary and very old. --Philip Graham, University of Illinois, Fiction Editor of Ninth Letter
Woodward is a lyrical, tantalizing modern romantic... --Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune
