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

Lots to make a fox sit up and take notice this week – the sun has come out again, for a start, just when we thought we’d never see it again, and it is such a wonderful sight. We’ve another of our greatest hits, more from the 2012 RNA conference, a review by Sam of an exciting debut, topsy-turvy tales from Kate, and on Friday, hold onto your swizzle sticks, as Ticky swings by ….

Monday: we’re all waiting to be amazed and bemused by no 8 in the Vulpes Libris Hall of Fame.

Tuesday: in our second dispatch from the RNA conference, Bookfox Kirsty talks about reading, reviewing and how writing changes everything.

Wednesday: Sam heads Down the Rabbit Hole with Juan Pablo Villalobos’s immaculate and devastating debut novel.

Thursday: Kate looks at poetry and graphic art in some Topsy-Turvy Tales.

Friday: Sloane-in-residence Ticky Dogge-Hare reviews the bonkbuster of the Olympic season, Kate Lace’s scandalous Cox.
