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.
This week, as is so often the joy of Vulpes Libris, the theme is that there is no theme – none whatsoever. So, like these little fox kits, we are all ears, ready to find out what various Bookfoxes have to bring to us, from a personal view of one of the greatest novelists of our time, to an interview to make us all sit up and take notice. On the way, a vintage surprise and a new venture will make this a week of infinite variety.
Monday: Kirsty D will be writing *something* about Margaret Atwood and how amazing she is.
Wednesday: Hilary returns from Sicily, and turns to the books of a surprising explorer of the island and its people, Gavin Maxwell.
Thursday: Simon takes you behind the scenes of shiny new bookish venture.
Friday: Kirsty M talks to Chris Ward, author of Living on the Western Front, about history, methodology and the debate around WWI.
