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 . . .

    I would be very grateful if you could send me another copy of the Winter issue of Slightly Foxed, which sadly I lost in an exchange with an Irishman in a Brazilian restaurant in Beijing.
