I love the fact that Sagan blew her £75 advance for Bonjour Tristesse on whisky and a chic black sweater. But she got the last laugh, and plenty more jumpers, because the novel was eventually translated into twenty languages, sold 2 million copies and was made into a film starring David Niven and Deborah Kerr . . .
The Quarterly Magazine
Looking for a bit of sanity this year in a mad, mad world? Then why not try a subscription to Slightly Foxed, the beautifully produced magazine for people who love books?
‘Absolutely beautifully produced.’ BBC Radio 4, Today
‘In a desert of internet conglomerates and soulless e-readers,Slightly Foxed is an oasis of literary joy.’ Paul Kingsnorth
‘It ranks as one of the more unusual publications I have ever come across and manages to be both literary and easily readable. I consider myself fairly well-read but Slightly Foxed never fails to dazzle me upon its arrival.’ Bookslut
