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.
We’re having a bit of a sleepy time in the den at the moment but we have managed to come up with 4 items to tickle your tastebuds this week, with ambitious comparative reviews to an interview with ex Arch-bish Rowan Williams from our very own Kirsty (at least that’s one of our own Kirstys, and just to make it more confusing it’s the one who likes to split into two more: Good Kirsty and Bad Kirsty as opposed to our Other Kirsty who is called – ermm – Other Kirsty) .
Still with me? Yes, I’m not sure either.
For those of you still following, here’s the run-down this week:
Monday: Jackie considers two contrasting books set in France.
On Wednesday, Kirsty talks to former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams about research, University life and the trouble with impact criteria.
Thursday: Moira is riveted by Michael Hiltzik’s stupendous study of mankind at its very best and very worst – Colossus: Hoover Dam and the Making of the American Century.
To round off the week, RosyB samples Herman Koch’s bestselling The Dinner on Friday.
