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.
Suddenly, it’s Autumn – mist, chilly mornings, foxes out and about and getting bolder (I drove very slowly down a local street the other day following a fox in broad daylight sauntering along in the middle of the road and totally ignoring the Green Cross Code). So, this week we boldly venture into hedonism (gasp!), bibliographical derring-do (topical!) and the hunt for a hat (seasonal!).
Monday: Kate is taken aback by the outrageous hedonism in Colin Spencer’s memoir Backing Into Light.
Wednesday: Hilary finds that Charlie Lovett’s The Bookman’s Tale rattles along nicely, though she takes serious issue with his views on hand-hygiene in rare books collections.
Friday: Lisa reviews Jon Klassen’s I Want My Hat Back, a funny picture book that has a huge number of adult fans.
