‘Thank you very much indeed for the fifth Slightly Foxed podcast . . . ’

‘Thank you very much indeed for the fifth Slightly Foxed podcast which I have enjoyed instead of doing some urgent admin . . . much more fun! I always listen to it several times, and seem to hear more each time.’

‘I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your most recent Podcast . . .’

‘I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your most recent Podcast. I am recuperating from major surgery, and I have to admit this is the first podcast of any kind I have ever listened to. What fun to feel we are sitting round your table. Has my coffee mug left a ring? I particularly enjoyed the comments on the Virago Modern Classics. It took me back to my bookselling days when the list was first launched. Since you published my little piece about Harrods Library (SF 32) I have become addicted to your wonderful quarterly, and it is always a joy to hear it arrive on the mat. Vivat Slightly Foxed’

‘I am rarely moved to write about such matters. But . . . ’

‘I am rarely moved to write about such matters.  But as a first-year subscriber to Slightly Foxed I have come to appreciate greatly the quarterly magazine, which reveals pleasures I would almost certainly have missed otherwise.  The winter issue introduced me to two delights: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and Lionel Davidson’s Kolymsky Heights, both of which I have since enjoyed immensely. So thank you for your introduction to them.  They have each, in their different ways, been revelatory.’

‘I wish I were a millionaire . . . ’

‘I wish I were a millionaire – I would buy subscriptions for all my friends! One of the great delights of Slightly Foxed is the high production values you exert-paper, printing, magnificent illustrations.  It always gives me a thrill of pleasure when each issue arrives-such a beautiful object in a world of plastic and IT!’

‘I have received my Spring issue and read it from cover to cover . . . ’

‘I have received my Spring issue and read it from cover to cover in one sitting! Pure unadulterated pleasure. From that I moved on to one of my purchases Hand-Grenade Practice in Peking, finishing it in a day! What an amazing insight into a foreign student’s life in China in 1975. The book had just the right balance of detail and humour. Such an easy but enriching read. I have moved on to Giving up the Ghost and am thoroughly absorbed in it.’

A Leap into the Light

A Leap into the Light

I first met Jan Morris in the offices of the publisher Random House in New York in the early 1980s. I was a junior editor there, and was invited to meet someone I considered to be one of the most intriguing writers I had read. This was nothing more than a handshake and an acknowledgement of our shared Britishness in New York. But I was immediately struck by Jan’s warmth and affability, qualities that are key to her genius for talking to people and drawing stories from them. (For while Jan is less of an extrovert in person than in her writings, and indeed in some ways is quite reserved, she nonetheless possesses a remarkable ability, surely learned in the world of journalism, to nose out a story.)
