Greetings from Hoxton Square, where we can scarcely believe we’ve come to the end of our alphabetical adventures through the Slightly Foxed archives, arriving at Andrew Wall’s piece on The Ladies’ Paradise by Émile Zola. As ever, you’ll find a link below to read the full article for free and we do hope you enjoy it.
It’s been a joy to delve into back issues and revisit old favourites, from Margery Allingham’s crime fiction to consumer culture with Émile Zola, via Barbara Comyns, Graham Greene, Molly Keane, Marilynne Robinson, Kurt Vonnegut and many more along the way. And we have barely burrowed into the archive of hidden gems: eighteen years’ worth of entertaining and original reading recommendations, good humour and good writing.
If you’re not already a subscriber to Slightly Foxed, a subscription comes highly recommended – as well as receiving a handsome parcel through your letterbox each quarter, you’d be enjoying free access to the full digital archive of the magazine and discounted rates on all books and goods too!
We will of course continue to bring you highlights from the archive, as well as dispatches about new issues, books, podcast episodes and more. Meantime, we wish you all a weekend of happy reading.
With best wishes from the SF office staff
Jennie, Anna, Hattie & Jess
