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

From Herefordshire to Aberdeenshire via the Ozarks, it’s a week of high drama in stunning rural settings.

On Monday, Hilary casts a churchwardenly eye over Phil Rickman’s vicar-sleuth Merrily Watkins.

On Wednesday, Jackie is surprised by the aftereffects of Daniel Woodrell’s novel Winter’s Bone.

And on Friday, Kate reads Nan Shepherd’s The Quarry Wood, and is transported to Edwardian Aberdeenshire.
