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.
As autumn and the year, wind down, we revisit some books; a new edition, an author’s reputation and a historical event. Plus some surprises from some of the Foxes. As they say at this time of year, it’s a bountiful harvest.
Monday- In the wake of a recent VL post, Simon defends Virginia Woolf’s Jacob’s Room.
Tuesday- To coincide with the 50th anniversary of the National Theatre, Edward Petherbridge has updated and republished his memoirs, Slim Chances and Kathleen Riley takes a look at the new edition.
Wednesday- After a year of talking about children’s books, Lisa ends with a review of something a bit different.
Thursday- Leena explores the world of Books of Hours with Eamon Duffy’s Marking the Hours: English People and Their Prayers 1240-1570.
Friday- On the 50th Anniversary of JFK’s assassination, Jackie revisits The Torch is Passed.
