Don't open this book if you've never wished for a spell to make someone love you, if you've never wanted a magic wand, if you've never longed for a cloak of invisibility, if you've never wondered how witches fly.

Best-selling author Erica Jong turns her attention to the fantastical and factual world of witchcraft, exploring the figure of the witch both as historical reality and as archetype. On page after page filled with magical illustrations by Joseph A. Smith, Jong spins tales in poetry and prose, even providing recipes for love potions and magic spells.
