 ‘The most brilliant, hilarious book’ India Knight


Country Life Book of the Week


A World of Reading

 The independent-minded quarterly 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 magazine.

Slightly Foxed also brings back forgotten voices through its Slightly Foxed Editions, a series of beautifully produced little pocket hardback reissues of classic memoirs, all of them absorbing and highly individual. For younger bookworms – and nostalgic older ones too – there’s the Slightly Foxed Cubs series, in which we’ve so far reissued all twelve of Ronald Welch’s outstanding – and long unavailable – Carey family series of historical novels for children, in a handsome format with the original illustrations. And there are more reissues of classic children’s authors to come.
