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

Aliano_scorcioIt’s all about extraordinary places and people this week on Vulpes Libris, as the Foxes set in about all manner of strange and wonderful things.

Monday Just in time for next weekend’s Academy Awards, Jackie checks into The Grand Budapest Hotel on Monday.

On Wednesday, Kate staggers under the weight of not one but two recent biographies of Storm Jameson, by Jennifer Birkett and Elizabeth Maslen.

And on Friday, it’s another Shelf of Shame moment for Hilary as she finally reads Carlo Levi’s Christ Stopped At Eboli.
