Vulpes Libris

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.

Coming Up…

Well, it doesn’t get more eclectic than this – what a perfect representation of the madness of Vulpes Libris, with classics, chicklit, Castro and Tin-Tin all in the same week.


Jackie has an eye-opening experience rereading Virginia Woolf’s To The Lighthouse.


Kirsty reviews the memoirs that marked Fidel Castro’s reappearance in the public sphere: La victoria estratégica and La contraofensiva estratégica.


Anne takes a determined gulp of Madeleine Wickham’s Cocktails for Three and to her surprise finds it just a tad bland


Jay reviews Pierre Assouline’s biography of Georges Remi, better known as Hergé, and tries – not entirely successfully – to separate the man from his creation.
