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.
Some of us Foxes are basking in real summer weather for once – you know – sunshine, warmth, windows open, sitting outside, ice cream – that sort of thing. Three Foxes are taking time out of their busy sunbathing schedule this week, to tell you about two vintage writers and a guilty TV-watching pleasure.
Monday: Jackie explains the appeal of television’s “House Hunters International”.
Wednesday: After nearly five years of being a Bookfox, Hilary is feeling strong enough to tell you about one of her very favourite books of all: Troy Chimneys by Margaret Kennedy. But… but … what if you don’t love it as much as I do ….?
Friday: Kate finds a new edition of Nancy Mitford’s collected essays.
