So the longer days will soon be here. Maybe you’re dreaming of wine beneath the vines, hot white beaches, absurdly blue seas – or perhaps a hammock in the garden, a good read and a long cool drink. Whatever your plans, may we suggest the perfect holiday companion – good-looking, discreet, well-informed, amusing, the quarterly book review that’s more like an entertaining friend than a literary magazine?
Unaffected by the winds of fashion and the hype of the big publishers, for the past nine years Slightly Foxed has been introducing its readers to some of the thousands of good books that long ago disappeared from the review pages and often from bookshop shelves. Companionable and unstuffy, it has a wide range of contributors – some well-known, some not – who all write very personally about the books they choose. It’s not so much a review magazine as a magazine of enthusiasms – some of them quite quirky.
Slightly Foxed strikes a blow for lasting quality — for the small and individual against the corporate and the mass produced. Why not join us, and enjoy some excellent company too?
