Spring has sprung at Slightly Foxed

Greetings from Hoxton Square where we’re ignoring our frozen toes and drippy noses, blocking out the hum of the boiler and insisting that it is now, officially, spring. Issue 81 of Slightly Foxed: The Real Reader’s Quarterly (the first of our 20th birthday year!) is published today and it’s brimming with lively recommendations to take your reading off the beaten track.

Among these: Adam Foulds meets Fernando Pessoa’s phantoms • Vesna Goldworthy spends Mothering Sunday with Graham Swift • Alexandra Pringle falls for Barbara Trapido’s people • Miranda Seymour discovers a haunting first novel • Brandon Robshaw salutes Captain Carruthers • Niall Alsopp stumbles upon Dorothy Dunnett – and much more besides . . .

Subscriber copies of the new issue and of our 66th cloth-bound hardback, My Salinger Year, Joanna Rakoff’s poignant and funny account of her first job in a New York literary agency, were sent out from our printers in Yorkshire last week and will soon be landing on doormats and in bookshops around the world, if not already.

If you’re not a subscriber and would like to try the new issue, you can buy it here: Issue 81. And if you’d like to subscribe for yourself, or as a gift, you can do so here: Subscriptions.

Those of you in need of presents for Mothering Sunday (coming up on 10 March in the UK) might like to scroll down the page for ideas, including some new pairs of books and a celebratory bundle of last year’s back issues in a duck-egg blue slipcase with £20 off.

We do hope you’ll enjoy reading the new season’s offerings, wherever in the world you are.

With best wishes from the SF office staff

Jess, Isabel, Rebecca & Izzy
