Greetings, dear readers. We’re delighted to announce that the new Spring issue of Slightly Foxed (No. 73) has now left the printing press at Smith Settle and will start to arrive with readers in the UK very soon and elsewhere over the next few weeks. It ranges far and wide in the usual eclectic manner:
Daisy Hay goes for a walk in Anthony Trollope’s Barsetshire • Chris Saunders considers the art of bookselling with Penelope Fitzgerald • Suzi Feay enters the strange world of Arthur Machen • Tim Pears salutes a Bosnian chronicler • Daisy Dunn visits ancient Greece with Mary Renault • Gustav Temple is unnerved by Patricia Highsmith, and much more besides . . .
We hope it will provide plenty of recommendations for reading off the beaten track this spring. With it, as usual, you’ll find a copy of our latest Readers’ Catalogue, detailing new books, our backlist, recommended seasonal reading and a selection of offers and bundles.
If you’re not a subscriber to the quarterly (and if not, 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!) then you might like to scroll down for a preview of the new issue and other literary delights.
And for those of you who are on a repeat order to receive each limited-edition memoir each quarter, your usual hand-numbered copy of Lark Rise by Flora Thompson will be with you very soon.
We shall look forward to the welcome flurry of correspondence that the turn of each new quarter brings. Meantime, happy reading.
With all good wishes from the SF office staff
Jennie, Anna, Hattie & Jess
