Book Fox (vulpes libris): a small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard. They tend to hunt alone but gather in packs to discuss their prey.
Now, it’s been a little while since we had a theme week, but apparently it’s Sex and Violence Week here on Vulpes Libris. Well, Sex, Violence and Terribly Serious Arguments.
Monday: Wimpy Jackie confronts Vikings and violence in Bernard Cornwall’s The Saxon Tales.
Tuesday: Number 6 in our Top Ten countdown could be described as one half of an unmatched set…
Wednesday: An ocker without profit in his own country: how Robert Hughes saw all of this coming. Review by Michael Carley.
Thursday: The Hon Ticky Dogge-Hare and her dreadfully serious friend Charlie talk about Sex and the City: the good, the bad and the bloody irritating.
Friday: Before there was 50 Shades, there was Gordon. Hilary considers Edith Templeton’s formerly banned novel, that explored dominance and submission before we learnt to label them.
