A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.
Monday: Kirsty has an exciting interview with best-selling novelist, Katie Fforde.
Tuesday: Leena raves about Finding Cassie Crazy by Jaclyn Moriarty, a YA novel both hilarious and moving about a school pen-pal project gone wrong (and right, depending on how you look at it).
Wednesday: Eve has a wee chat with Keith Gray, author of Ostrich Boys (see the review here). They discuss teen boys; writing for them, their reading habits and why they only want to talk about shagging.
Thursday: Lisa reviews Jodi Picoult’s first novel, Songs of the Humpback Whale, a multi-narrator novel about a woman who leaves her whale expert husband and drives across America with her teenage daughter to New England. First published in America in 1992 but released in the UK this autumn.
Friday: Continuing her Australian odyssey, Emily goes contemporary with a review of At Seventeen, the fifth Young Adult novel by Celeste Walters.
Saturday: Leena reviews The Family That Couldn’t Sleep: Unravelling a Venetian Medical Mystery by D. T. Max – a look into Fatal Familial Insomnia, a rare hereditary brain disease.
