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.
Heating on, woolly jumpers retrieved far too soon – what we need is an Indian Summer – or a late holiday in warmer climes. An ‘Invitation au Voyage’, in fact, to a place where all is ‘luxe, calme et volupté’…. (It may become clear as you read on what has brought on this train of thought.) Or just warm will do – rather like the home of today’s gorgeous little fox. That’ll do nicely. Meanwhile, curling up with a good book, or even a good website, sounds like a good idea. So, from Education to Seduction this week, via a splendidly bookish interview.
Monday: Jackie checks out the fun and educational website History Chicks.
Wednesday: Kirsty M speaks to Brendan Walsh, literary editor of The Tablet, about Catholicism, the books business and the life of the UK’s second-oldest weekly.
Friday: ‘Be ready to be seduced’ it says at the top of the cover blurb. ‘Bring It On’ says Hilary, as she launches into Roberto Calasso’s La Folie Baudelaire.
