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.

In this issue: Flora Watkins relives a golden summer • Christian Tyler goes fly-fishing • Ursula Buchan meets a literary gardener • Ian Thomson takes a train to Budapest • Sam Leith has a bad dream • Pauline Melville drops in on Compton Mackenzie • Nick Hunt travels America’s Badlands • Maggie Fergusson encounters an unwelcome guest • Nigel Andrew follows the Good Doctor • Laura Freeman finds magic in her Hall, and much more besides . . .
