Slightly Foxed is a rather different kind of book review – more like bookish friend, really, than a literary periodical. Companionable and unstuffy, each quarter it offers 96 pages of personal recommendations for books of lasting interest, old and new – the kind of good reads you knew you were looking for but somehow haven’t been able to find. It’s an eclectic mix, covering all the main categories of fiction and non-fiction, and our contributors are an eclectic bunch too. Some of them are names you’ll have heard of, some not, but they all write thoughtfully, elegantly and entertainingly.
We’ve been going for nine years now, and readers frequently tell us we’ve filled a gap in their lives, opening up new horizons, introducing them to hitherto unknown writers and reintroducing them to old favourites too. They love the way Slightly Foxed looks and the way it feels – charmingly illustrated, on elegant cream paper, and just the right size to slip into a coat pocket. And they love our new series of Slightly Foxed Editions – beautifully produced little hardback reprints of classic memoirs that have been allowed to slip out of print, each available in a limited and numbered cloth-bound pocket edition of 2,000 copies.
