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 in the UK we’ve had a very very wet Spring, and now finally we have Winter, which is set to last for all of about five days. The daffodils, and the squirrels, are mighty confused by all this white stuff that’s fallen from the sky, and this Bookfox has forgotten how to keep warm. What better opportunity then to curl up on a warm sofa with the proverbial good book? This week, we have three contrasting candidates for you.
Monday: Cath has been reading The North Water by Ian McGuire, and now all she needs are the words to tell us about it.
Wednesday: Simon is surprised at enjoying Americanah immensely, and learns lots about hair along the way.
Friday: Hilary finds reading Viv Albertine’s memoir Clothes Clothes Clothes Music Music Music Boys Boys Boys makes her reflect on her own wasted opportunity to have a mis-spent youth.
