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 on Vulpes Libris


Before the Book Foxes sign off for 2011, let it not be said that we don’t know how to leave with a bang! We’ve a packed week for you, so take time off from the stress of present buying, wrapping and the general social whirlwind that is December and enjoy what we have to offer…

On Monday Jackie celebrates the joy of Christmas carols.

On Tuesday Moira finds that her appalling French accent ceases to be a liability as she reviews Avant Garde a Clue – the story of the unknown Dada poet Paul Déaveroin by Isskott Belsohn.

On Wednesday Anne sadly finds nothing much to love in Madeleine Wickham’s The Tennis Party.

On Thursday, Kirsty admits to a rather unexpected addiction: Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series.

On Friday, we talk to Jane Juska – author of the best-selling A Round Heeled Woman – about sex, Trollope and confounding expectations.
