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 . . . 

Slightly Foxed is a literary magazine that has the incomparable value of following its own way, the principles of pleasure and curiosity, rather than bobbing slavishly in the wake of publishing schedules. It’s always full of good things; but, more than that, it’s always full of unexpected things.’ Sam Leith

‘For people who read a lot, it can be hard to find new suggestions, and every time I read Slightly Foxed, I add several titles to my library list.’ Gretchen Rubin, The Happiness Project

‘A lovely production . . . it contains many riches.’ The Bookseller
