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

foxAnother delightfully odd week on Vulpes Libris, with no discernible theme, but we hope you’ll find something in the mix to pique your interest.

Tuesday: Kirsty speaks to Katie Ritson and Arielle Helmick from the Rachel Carson Center, LMU Munich.

Wednesday: Jackie delves into the layers and meanings of the film Quiz Show.

Thursday: Hilary normally would be resistant to the charms of a novella with a librarian wearing glasses and her hair in a bun on the cover, but for Sophie Divry’s The Library of Unrequited Love she may make an exception.

Friday: Kate visits the gentlemen’s clubs of London.

Saturday: Leena reads another take on living without money for a year: The Moneyless Man by Mark Boyle.
