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

Fox-Sounds-Fuzzy-FreddyA little startled by the rushing past of time and the arrival of December (where did it come from? weren’t we just having August?) the Bookfoxes are listening and looking this week, hearing and seeing stories in unwritten ways.

Monday 30 November: Eve is utterly stunned by the brilliance of Shtum by Jem Lester (a book about a ten-year old boy with severe autism) and will try to put her awe into words.

Wednesday 2 December – Kirsty D listens to the audiobook version of Anna Lyndsey’s Girl in the Dark, about living with an acute sensitivity to light.

Friday 4 December – Hilary reacts to the art of emeritus landscape artist Richard Long, inspired by his recent exhibition and the accompanying book Time And Space.

The listening fox was photographed by Rob Lee, for an article about the sounds that foxes make on the Animal Bliss blog.
