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.


mugshotKirsty 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.
