A Fortunate Man | From the Slightly Foxed archives
‘John Berger has spent three months shadowing his remarkable friend the local GP night and day, to paint a portrait of his life . . .’ Please join us as we travel through the Slightly Foxed archives to the Forest of Dean in the 1960s, where we meet ‘an exceptional GP’ in Dr Sassall, the country doctor depicted in A Fortunate Man by John Berger. We hope you enjoy Rose Baring’s piece from SF Issue 67. And we also bring you more information about this year’s Slightly Foxed Readers’ Day, our one-day literary festival at the Art Workers’ Guild in London. The event will be held on Saturday 5 November, and we urge you to book your place now. It’s a high point in our calendar and we look forward to hearing our contributors speak about a wide range of bookish subjects and, of course, meeting readers old and new.
