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.
After our week of country matters, and our week of writers’ haunts, the theme this week is that there is no theme. At least I don’t think there is – answers on a postcard if you find one. We go from cozy to funny via a life story:
Monday: Jackie talks about some of the cozy mystery series she’s been enjoying lately.
Wednesday: Kate reviews a biography of Hilda Matheson, the BBC’s first Director of Talks, and Vita Sackville West’s lover (one of them, anyway).
Friday: Hilary provides a buyers’ guide for new fans of Don Marquis’s beloved and hilarious characters archy and mehitabel (to say nothing of pete the parrot and the old trouper).
