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 . . . 

‘It’s so pleasant diving into good writing about good reading’ Glen Hirshberg

‘There is a nostalgic – dare one say almost whimsical – quality to Slightly Foxed which is both appealing and quietly stimulating … At times there is also ‘something of the night’ about it but in this case the sort of black night when there is no greater pleasure than pulling the curtains against the cold, driven rain and lighting the fire’ W. M. Millar, North Berwick
