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.
Kirsty Jane McCluskey writes about literature, history, romantic fiction and, increasingly, theology. She has a BA in Russian and German and an MPhil in Modern European History from the University of Cambridge. She has been a member of Vulpes Libris since 2008.
Kirsty is the long-suffering non-fictional alter ego of VL’s resident socialite, the Hon Ticky Dogge-Hare.
Tomorrow (Monday 20th February) is the One Day Without Us National Day of Action in the UK, coinciding with the UN World Day of Social Justice. It is no surprise to find that this week's Fox contributors were all pointing in the same direction, so we find we have a spontaneous, pop-up Migration Theme Week.
Monday: Kate plans the invitation wishlist for an imaginary party to celebrate the British literary culture created by migrants, for 1daywithoutus.org
Wednesday: Moira reviews one of the funniest, and most fascinating books on the Norse Sagas that she's ever read and wonders aloud what the Vikings ever did for us.
Friday: Hilary muses on what One Day Without Us would have looked like in an 18th c English public library.
