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.
Hello from sunny Scotland! Yes, it’s true. Today has been of the most glorious sunny days where I am and it’s nearly October! But, despite the sun, it’s still definitely autumn with golden leaves falling from trees and squirrels everywhere doing their burying-nuts thing.
Here at Vulpes central, the foxes have unearthed a hidden literary larder of autumn delights and we’ll be posting them up for you all this week. We have politics, suspense, history, time and archaeology and a discussion that encompasses everything from body image and plastic surgery in the over-50s to discussion on how to harness our own creativity. We’d love you to join in if you have any thoughts on any of these issues.
So here’s the line-up and I hope your Sunday has been as sunny as mine, whereever you are.
MONDAY Jackie finds that Nicolle Wallace’s It’s Classified has a different kind of suspense than most political novels.
WEDNESDAY Sharon is fascinated by a novel set in the last months of Ceausescu’s Romania.
THURSDAY Kate takes a break in her hectic schedule to tell us about Richard Morris’s Time’s Anvil, an exploration of history, time and archaeology and the development of how we think about history and the past.
FRIDAY RosyB talks to Susie Nott-Bower, writer of the novel The Making of Her, about writing, painting, creativity, plastic surgery in the over 50s and other Big Life Questions.
