I think most of us are aware of the TV show 'Bewitched' right? Well it's based on Thorne Smith's last novel "Passionate Witch."

The big difference with the novel is that it has 'dark' overtones with respect to married relationships. The Witch here is really a witch. She puts spells on women she feel is putting the moves on her husband. And the husband just wants a piece of mind and some space... Weird book.

But overall you can't go wrong with Throne Smith. Why this man is so underrated is beyond...more
