The passionate witch by Thorne Smith( Book )
13 editions published between 1941 and 1954 in English and held by 152 libraries worldwide
Recounts the remarkable consequences of a marriage of a meek and respectible man with a grade-A witch. T. Wallace Wooly, Jr., a wealthy widower who lived a quiet and stuffy life on a diet of vitamins and vegetable juices, did not know what he was getting in for when he rescued a strange woman, entirely nude, from a burning hotel. In fact, Mr. Wooly was a little bewildered a week later to discover that he had taken the lady as his wife. His bride's unconventional antics were eventually to revolutionize Mr. Wooly's life. He who had never in his life drunk anything stronger than carrot juice was to find that steady alcoholic consumption was requisite to peace of mind. There follow some of the finest binges in literature, climaxed by the memorable scene in which Mr. Wooly disguised as an old lady from Perth Amboy, appears at a Turkish bath.--Amazon
