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 this week:

The YawnSummer – what there was of it in the UK (a fortnight’s heatwave and a thunderstorm) – is in retreat, autumn is fast approaching and the Foxes are slowly dragging themselves back from their various August disportments to try and get a grip on life, the universe and book blogging. This week, we have what can only kindly be described as a ‘mixed bag’ …  

Monday: Moira considers a celebrity autobiography-lite that’s actually worth reading, but possibly not for the usual sort of autobiographical reasons.

Wednesday: Kate is fizzing with excitement about newly published letters by Sylvia Townsend Warner and Valentine Ackland.

Friday: Hilary describes her reaction to Marjane Satrapi’s graphic (in all senses) autobiography Persepolis.
