‘The two weeks in Washington seemed to last an age, for travel makes time stand still, like a dream which takes one through a long series of adventures while actually lasting only a few moments.’
Jessica Mitford, SF Edition No. 52: Hons and Rebels
Greetings from Hoxton Square, where we offer a series of adventures across the globe through our Slightly Foxed Editions. Between the cloth-bound covers of these colourful pocket hardbacks you’ll find intrepid and entertaining travel companions: visit Italian mountain ranges with Eric Newby, East Africa with Roald Dahl, Spain with Laurie Lee, the United States with Jessica Mitford . . . These are just a few of the far-flung destinations explored in our series of classic memoirs – each edition brings alive a particular place and invites you into someone else’s world.
Please read on for a selection of reading recommendations which we hope will transport you to distant climes and make time stand still.
With best wishes, as ever, from the SF office staff
Jennie, Anna, Hattie & Jess
