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.
The 1938 Club is a blogging week that Our Simon and his blogging friends have organised, in which bloggers the world over are invited to post review of books published in 1938. I took a punt on the blogging world and her dogwalkers writing about the usual suspects, British middle-class fiction by nice cosy white ladies, and asked the Bookfoxes to do something different.
Monday: Jackie is entertained by ‘How We Went to Mars’, Arthur C. Clarke’s humorous short story.
Wednesday: Simon picks up a book that’s been on his shelf for years: Young Man With A Horn by Dorothy Baker.
Friday: Hilary unearths Cyril Connolly’s Enemies of Promise, and finds that its time might just have come around again.
Simon and I will be posting other 1938 reviews on our respective sites as well: it’s going to be a glorious wallow in the culture of 1938. Search for The 1938 Club from 11 to 17 April, and see how many other reviews you can spot!
