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 this week on Vulpes Libris

foxIt’s been a busy weekend for lots of people, so we’re re-posting an apposite review from last year to start this new era off. In contrast, Simon and Hilary are posting reviews so fresh and steaming that you can probably still smell the delightful scent of freshly plucked words garnishing their crisp ideas and melting language. Let’s stay creative and energetic in our endeavours, and support each other as we resist the extremists, all over the world.

Monday 23 January: a rerun of Sharon’s review of The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman.

Wednesday 25 January: Simon takes a look at some Closely Observed Trains by Bohumil Hrabal.

Friday 27 January: Hilary ascends Golden Hill with Francis Spufford.
