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.
To represent the utter fabulousness of this week’s Book Fox offerings, for today’s image we give you not just any old fox but a Firefox* (yes, it’s more commonly called a Red Panda but for today’s purposes it’s a Firefox). Take a deep breath and be still your beating hearts because we have some amazing items this week, including a write-up of Rosy’s experiences at the Borders Book Festival and an interview with a very well-known actor.
Monday 6th – Jackie goes all political with Demagogue in which Michael Signer asks what makes a demagogue and then names names.
Tuesday 7th – RosyB “does” her first festival as an invited writer – the Borders Book Festival in beautiful Melrose in Scotland – and tells us why she thinks littler festivals can be particularly rewarding.
Wednesday 8th – On Wednesday, we have the fourth in our occasional “In Conversation with …” series, when actor Richard Armitage talks thoughtfully about the important books in his life, history’s favourite double-dyed villain and the redemption of Guy of Gisborne … among other things.
Thursday 9th – Kirsty dances around Dancing with Cuba.
Friday 10th – Anne sifts through the shadows of John Wray’s Lowboy but doesn’t find quite what she bargained for.
Saturday 11th – Eve is back with another review of a YA book.
Sunday 12th – Lisa enjoys profanity with Trevor Byrne’s Ghosts and Lightning.
