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.
This week, we have a classic Vulpes Libris pick ‘n’ mix selection, in which we ponder American radio stations, classic literature, a Danish TV show and a delightfully silly children’s book about rebellious farm animals.
Monday: Kate pokes about behind the history of the Scarlet Pimpernel.
Wednesday: What’s RosyB going to do now that Saturday night is no longer Borgen Night? She looks at what has captured the imagination about this Danish political drama and asks whether it’s the politics, the fantastic female characters or the stylish light fittings that keep people coming back for more.
Thursday: Lisa talks typewriters and moody cows in Doreen Cronin’s Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type.
Friday: Jackie takes a trip back to when a Cleveland radio station changed music and a city’s reputation with The Buzzard by John Gorman.
