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

6805564086_847cbfe0cb_oWell, I have drawn the short straw this weekend, writing here in the UK during this most proverbially interesting of times. But the den is a virtual one, crossing oceans and continents – and its Foxes continue to feed their minds and attempt to stimulate others’ by what we write here – so nothing here of politics or economics, but books, writers and films and their creators. Just our usual week of variety and a couple of mysteries to be revealed: one film, one book, one dirtbag.

Monday: our reporter from the Edinburgh Film Festival, Rosy, reviews a UK film, fresh from its winning the Norah Ephron Award at Tribeca – Adult Life Skills.

Wednesday: having recently moved house, Moira was delighted to rediscover, deep in a long-unopened box, a little book that made a big impact on her….

Friday: Kirsty M pays tribute to The Toast by introducing her personal favourite dirtbag narrator.
