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.
Here on VL, we’re cheerfully cavalier about the way we throw our weeks together.
Sometimes, we deliberately aim for a ‘Theme Week’.
Sometimes, they just sort of happen.
Most times though, we simply pass around the collection bucket and see what ends up in it – which is why this week on VL, we have one black dog, two bêtes noires and a side order of sugar frosting …
… Whatever else we are, we ain’t dull.
On Monday Kirsty D is uplifted by Matt Haig’s Reasons to Stay Alive.
On Tuesday we’re joined by actor/author/director Steven Berkoff, who provides some typically pithy answers to questions about writing, publishing and ‘the glint of the possessed’.
On Thursday, Jackie says her life looks even more boring after reading The Andy Cohen Diaries.
And finally on Friday, Sharon is impressed by Anne De Courcy’s biography of Diana Mosley.
