From £48 per year, with subscriber discounts and benefits
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 having a well-read friend than a subscription to a literary review.
A Glossary of the Shetland Dialect,  36
Greetings from Hoxton Square, where we’re rolling up our sleeves to spring clean the office in readiness for the arrival of an abundance of spring publications in a few weeks’ time.
As delightful as it is to receive each quarter’s delivery, it often means that we have to get rather creative in order to make space for our new additions while they wait to be shipped off to readers around the world. If you’d like to help us clear a few shelves and take the opportunity to fill any gaps in your Slightly Foxed collection, now is the time.
We’re delighted to bring you news of a Slightly Foxed special release: Adrian Bell, A Countryman’s Spring Notebook
Another treat for lovers of Adrian Bell to put alongside A Countryman’s Winter Notebook, which we published in 2021. A Countryman’s Spring Notebook is our second seasonal selection from the weekly column Bell wrote from 1950 to 1980 for the Eastern Daily Press and catches beautifully the arrival of Spring in the East Anglian landscape he loved and knew so well. Each essay is a little masterpiece, a fleeting moment captured with a painterly eye and the down-to-earth observation of the farmer Bell became after he left his fashionable life in Chelsea shortly after the First World War – an experience which produced his much-loved farming trilogy, Corduroy, Silver Ley and The Cherry Tree.
