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.
Our dedication to the Vulpine cause knoweth (almost) no bounds, but even WE feel that from time to time we deserve a break, so this week will be a short one, with just two main offerings – a thoroughly seasonal one on Monday and a thoroughly … well … Kirsty one on Tuesday.
Monday finds Jackie deconstructing the seasonal poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas – and she says you won’t look at it the same way again afterwards.
On Tuesday Kirsty introduces a work of substantial interest with Part I of her review of Ignacio Ramonet’s Fidel Castro: Biografia a dos voces.
Finally, on Wednesday, Lisa will be here bearing season’s greetings and details of our Christmas and New Year holiday plans.
