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 This Week

In the U.S. this Thursday, we commemorate Thanksgiving Day. Though it’s morphed into a celebration of many other things; sports, gluttony, family dysfunction, it was originally about giving thanks for our everyday blessings. In that spirit, VL would like to thank you, our readers, for making us a part of your everyday routine. Thanks for reading our pieces, commenting and often sharing ideas and experiences that help our understanding or makes us nod in agreement. We appreciate it!
And to continue our holiday metaphor, we present a cornucopia of topics this week:

Monday-  Guest reviewer Kirsty Doole opens the week with a look at one of the early fruits of the collaboration between Random House and Hammer Films – Helen Dunmore’s multi-layered ghost story,  The Greatcoat.

Tuesday- Michael Carley gets on his bike with Lawrence of Arabia, Hunter S. Thompson, and Ted and Robert Hughes.

Thursday- Anne finds an equal amount of lyricism and boredom in her reading of Andrew Miller’s prize-winning novel Pure.

Friday- Hilary finds food for thought and much to delight in the love story of an exotic interloper, in Catherine Czerkawska’s new novel Ice Dancing.
