‘Anne Fadiman recalls that Charles Lamb “once told Coleridge that he was especially fond of books containing traces of buttered muffins”’
Here at Hoxton Square we feel we may be kindred spirits with Charles Lamb, especially as the season turns and there’s a chill in the air, calling for muffins and good books to bury one’s nose in.
As we come to the end of another busy working week, we’d like to take you back to where our story began: the first article of the first issue of Slightly Foxed magazine. Appropriately enough, it’s about a lifelong obsession with books. Please click here to read Liz Robinson’s piece on Anne Fadiman’s Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader. And we do hope that you, dear readers, will find a kindred spirit in Anne Fadiman.
With best wishes, as ever, from the SF office staff
