Subjects of articles published in Slightly Foxed: The Real Reader’s Quarterly 

Each quarter Slightly Foxed offers lively personal recommendations for books of lasting interest – books, including fiction, non-fiction and poetry, that have stood the test of time and have left their mark on the people who write about them. It’s an eclectic and wide-ranging mix, introducing readers to some of the thousands of good books that may have long ago disappeared from the review pages and often from bookshop shelves.
