What Witches Do - J & S Farrar (3rd edn)
Stewart Farrar was a reflective, curious journalist who went to Alex and Maxine Sanders' coven to do a news story, and ended up staying to be initiated and trained. This book is the account of his experience, and an eloquent narrative of what he learned in his training. We love this book. Farrar makes one feel one is in the room with him during the rituals and training sessions, and more than that, he is able to bring to life people's personalities, so the reader feels they've know Alex Sanders by the time they are halfway through the book. This handsome third edition has a poignant preface by the authors, well worth a read. The image on the dustwrapper is our favourite of the cover art of all the editions: a striking colour silhouette of Janet Farrar, with Stewart in soft-focus in the background.
