‘It has been a great pleasure to read your Summer issue of Slightly Foxed. To meet so many old friends over my early morning cup of tea has been a lasting stimulus throughout the day.’ T. Bayliss


Open up a world of new reading with Slightly Foxed, the quarterly magazine for booklovers. Companionable, entertaining and elegantly produced, it’s more like a well-read friend than a literary review.

In this issue: Jane Ridley meets the Queen • Derek Parker socializes with Eddie Marsh • Amanda Theunissen joins the quest for Kim • Richard Holloway finds redemption in art • Penelope Lively hears voices from the past • Anthony Wells continues his search for lost time • Laura Freeman discovers the tragedy behind the work of A. A. Milne • Michael Leapman sticks up (and sits down) for George Bernard Shaw • Ariane Bankes snaps up something wholesale, and much more besides . . .

About Slightly Foxed

The independent-minded quarterly that combines good looks, good writing and a personal approach. Slightly Foxed introduces its readers to books that are no longer new and fashionable but have lasting appeal. Good-humoured, unpretentious and a bit eccentric, it’s more like a well-read friend than a literary magazine. More . . .
