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

Fennec (Vulpes zerda)

Short – long – short this week (isn’t that reminiscent of SOS? Wholly inappropriate though, for what we have to offer you. No escape routes needed).

Jackie on Monday and Hilary on Friday have thoughts to offer on contrasting short stories; Kate on Wednesday is introducing us to a monumentally long novel sequence.

Monday: Jackie showcases a collection of outrageous short stories in American Housewife by Helen Ellis.

Wednesday: Kate explains why she’s posting reviews on her site of all 13 volumes of Dorothy Richardson’s Pilgrimage.

Friday: Hilary has recently found out that answering the question ‘Where is Wych Street?’ can lead to tragic consequences.

Sometimes hauling oneself out of the burrow is just about as much as one can do. This sleepy fennec fox comes from the Flickr photo stream of Derek Keats, and is reproduced here under a Creative Commons Attribution Only licence. Clicking on the image will load the source page.
