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.
If I were to be so foolish as to try to encapsulate this week on Vulpes Libris, I might say something like ‘Surrealism bracketed by Cornwall’ … but I’m not foolish, so instead I’ll go off at a tangent and tell you that here in the UK the Met Office has announced that summer is finally on its way.
It will arrive on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, there will be violent thunderstorms.
Having got that out of the way, we can all start looking forward to Christmas.
On Monday, we talk to novelist Liz Fenwick about Cornwall, bowls of muscles and the darkling inner voice.
On Wednesday Kate reads Leonora Carrington’s slim but bonkers novel The Hearing Trumpet
Finally, on Friday, Hilary has to come to terms with an alternative Cornwall in Gavin Knight’s The Swordfish and the Star.
