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.
Slightly at odds with the sudden appearance of summer — I call it a delightful contrast, myself — it’s a week of serious themes, big personalities and life-changing questions as the Foxes get in about the seamy side of life.
On Monday, Kate enjoys a story of invisibility in the suburbs.
On Tuesday, Hilary notes that no living celebrities were harmed in the making of Craig Brown’s strip-the-willow of gossip, One On One. The same cannot be said for late celebrities.
On Thursday, Moira finds Alastair Scott a slightly jaundiced travelling companion in his eye-opening journey around Scotland, Native Stranger.
And on Friday, Jackie revels in the masterpiece that is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
