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 this week

Hereford flowersAs the English heatwave breaks and thunderstorms rage overhead, staying in with a good book is a particularly attractive prospect. Just as well, then, that we’ve got plenty of fiction recommendations coming up this week on Vulpes Libris. We’ve got dark fables, Greek fairy tales, and Austen spin-offs… VL is nothing if not varied!

Monday: Kate reflects on the horror and hypocrisy in T F Powys’s dark fable Mr Tasker’s Gods.

Wednesday: Kirsty D takes on A Tale Without a Name

Friday: Hilary breaks her self-imposed No Jane Austen Spin-offs rule to rave about Jo Baker’s Longbourn.
