In I Put A Spell on You, Sam George-Allen explores how certain practices of women today mirror the work of their spell-casting ancestors. This collection sheds light on who witches actually were, before patriarchal societies painted these women as the wart-faced bedfellows of demons.
'George-Allen uses an astonishing body of research in this evocative fiction.' BRIDGET LUTHERBORROW, Slinkies curator
