We’re delighted to report that the new Summer issue of Slightly Foxed (No. 70) 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:
Tim Mackintosh-Smith returns to Burgess’s Malaya • Olivia Potts cooks with Laurie Colwin • Margaret von Klemperer climbs Mount Kenya • Jim Crumley goes to ground with Gavin Maxwell • Amanda Theunissen sets out for Trebizond • Jonathan Smith meets Silas Marner • Lesley Downer goes language-hunting in the Karakorum • Jonathan Keates revisits John Moore’s England, and much more besides . . .
With it, as usual, you’ll find a copy of our latest Readers’ Catalogue, detailing new books, our backlist, selected seasonal reading and other offers and bundles. We hope it will provide plenty of recommendations for reading off the beaten track this summer.
If you’re not a subscriber to the quarterly (and if not, a subscription comes highly recommended – as well as receiving a parcel of bookish delights 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 closer look at the latest issue and browse the season’s other offerings.
For those of you on a repeat order to receive the same hand-numbered copy of each quarter’s limited-edition memoir, your copy of Still Life by Richard Cobb should be with you soon.
As ever, we look forward to the flurry of emails, letters, postcards and telephone calls that the turn of the new quarter brings – it’s a joy to correspond with our readers. We do hope you’ll enjoy the new issue of the magazine, wherever in the world you are.
With all good wishes from the SF office staff
Jennie, Anna, Hattie & Jess
