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

4167161170_d845c5b171Friday is Valentine’s Day, and love is in the air as the Foxes enthuse about passion, music, beautiful books and other sublime things.

Except for Moira, who’s going to be talking about hydrofracking.

On Monday, Kate thrills to Charlotte Bronte’s passionate Tales of Angria (swoon).

On Tuesday, Simon takes a happy wander through the Persephone catalogue.

On Wednesday, Hilary indulges her love of books with a musical theme with Toby Faber’s Stradivarius: One Cello, Five Violins and a Genius.

On Thursday, Moira takes a timely look at Alex Prud’homme’s Hydrofracking from the OUP’s ‘What Everyone Needs to Know’ series, and finds it does exactly what it says on the tin.

And on Friday, Kirsty M owns up to a gloriously inappropriate, utterly inadmissible but profound and lasting fictional crush: the very unacceptable Malcolm Tucker.
