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

Wish you were here?

Well, darlings, we’re in the second week of June and summer seems to have come and gone already.  The other day, my friend Vivi had her annual garden party (Vivi is nothing if not determined), and we all ended up fleeing inside to drink Pimm’s with the central heating on.  I’ve taken to carrying an emergency jumper at all times; in this weather, you can’t necessarily rely on some nice man lending you his dinner jacket.

However, you *can* rely on the lovely Bookfoxes to provide you with quality book reviews.  (Ha!  See what I did there?)  So pour yourself a drink, possibly a hot one, and enjoy this week’s lineup!   Love, Ticky xxxxxxxx

On Monday, Nikki reviews Mark Gatiss’s debut Lucifer Box novel, The Vesuvius Club.

On Thursday, Anne discovers something charmingly different in The Two Mrs Robinsons by Donna Hay.

On Friday, Moira revisits her old West Country haunts as she reviews Liz Fenwick’s debut novel, The Cornish House.

On Saturday, Leena ponders on navel-gazing in literary fiction with a review of Anne Enright’s The Forgotten Waltz.
