There are subscriptions to arrange, presents to be wrapped, renewals to attend to and office puppies to be walked, so we’ll leave you in peace to read an extract from the new Slightly Foxed Edition: No. 40, When I Was a Little Boy, a charming and poignant memoir by the author of the well-loved children’s classic Emil & The Detectives, Erich Kästner.
invite you to join them to celebrate the publication of Slightly Foxed Issue 56 and When I Was a Little Boy.
There will be books galore, plenty of wine and a 20% discount on all purchases on the night. So please do come and be merry, and stock up on Christmas presents.

From the start, we were keen that Slightly Foxed should feature not only contributors familiar from other book pages but also the voices of people who could write but who didn’t think of themselves as writers – people outside the literary world, who had other equally interesting kinds of experience, and for whom the written word was just as important. We’ve come to the conclusion that this describes many of our readers, judging from your sparky entries to the writers’ competitions we’ve run in the past. So, now the dark evenings have closed in again, we think it’s a good time to run another one . . .
