A World of Good Reading

The independent-minded literary magazine that combines good looks, good writing and a personal approach. Slightly Foxed introduces its readers to books that are no longer new and fashionable but have lasting appeal. Good-humoured, unpretentious and a bit eccentric, it’s more like a well-read friend than a literary review.

Office closure: a message to readers

Self-isolating Fox


We’re all facing extraordinary circumstances at the moment and at Slightly Foxed we have you, and the huge importance of books to help us through difficult times, very much in mind. Most of us are stuck at home now but to process orders and keep the show on the road Anna had been doing the long walk down to Hoxton Square from her home in Turnpike Lane, while Hattie had been staying in the bedroom at the office.


Now restrictions are tightening, and we know that you wouldn’t want these noble souls to take unnecessary risks on your behalf. So we’ve made the decision to close the office from Wednesday 25 March for the next few weeks. Gail and Hazel will be keeping in touch with you by newsletter to let you know what’s going on, and we’ll be fulfilling your orders again as soon as things start to ease. We’ve all sorts of exciting things in the pipeline and we’ll be back with you again as soon as we can. Meantime, we look forward to being with you (virtually) for our podcast on Evelyn Waugh on 15 April.
