An elderly crook has trouble sticking to a vow to stop terrorizing his New Orleans neighborhood. A Baton Rouge couple’s stable marriage is disrupted by a Katrina refugee from abroad.

In these ten stories, Angus Woodward gives us a tour of south Louisiana as his characters tiptoe out of the corners into which they have painted themselves.

Editorial Reviews

Review

A ride through the world created by Angus Woodward in his first collection, Down at the End of the River gives us another good story teller with plenty of crazy people to write about to add to the list….Woodward’s gift for imaginative plots makes the reader want to see more work in the future. –The Xavier Review, February 2009

Woodward has an uncanny ability to slip inside the hearts and minds of characters as they step off the worn paths of their lives. Each lively, funny, heart-felt story is a quirky delight. –Brent Spencer, author of Are We Not Men?

Woodward’s fertile, off-center imagination captures the soul of southern Louisiana…, a humid,hilarious debut collection not to be missed. –Dinty W. Moore author of Between Panic and Desire
