Phyllis Curotts memoir, Book of Shadows, was a chronicle of her discovery of the Goddess and her eventual initiation into a Wiccan coven. Despite the fact that something like a dozen new titles about witchcraft appear on bookstore shelves every month, this one got noticed in a big way, perhaps due in part to the authors professional credentials. Educated at Yale, Curott was a successful attorney at a prestigious Manhattan firm when Book of Shadows was published. Lawyer by day, high priestess by night talk show hosts formed lines to ask, "Whats up with that?" As an image, it didnt seem very, you know, witchy. Where was the flowing, tie-dyed, Earth Mother dress? The fingers dripping with silver jewelry, the Celtic knotwork, the gobs of crystals on cords of woven hemp? What do you mean, she showed up for her interview wearing Armani and there wasnt even a trace of patchouli in the air? Doesnt she at least have a black caftan?
