Twitch Upon a Star
By Herbie J. Pilato
Hardcover, 472 pages ($24.95 / Taylor Trade Press)

For anyone who only recalls Elizabeth Montgomery from her most memorable role, on the 1960s sitcom Bewitched, this thoroughly researched, extensively detailed, and wholly fascinating biography will load you up with everything you’ve been missing. It’s a delicious, detailed look at her life and remarkable career before, during and after that magical, life-changing show; her crusading and often controversial activism for the causes close to her heart; her often turbulent relationship with her father, actor Robert Montgomery; her rocky marital history; and the many other facets of the woman who played Samantha Stephens, TV’s “witch with the twitch” at the end of her nose.

Twitch is now available in paperback and electronic form, and it also ignited the sequel The Essential Elizabeth Montgomery: A Guide to Her Magical Performances.
