Dear Reader,

There isn’t much to be cheerful about in this world of plague anxiety. Yet one comfort is that, locked down as we all are, we may have more opportunities to read.

That’s where The Spectator can help. We’ve got a flash sale on, and there are many reasons you’ll want to take it up:

  • We have now put our June edition to bed and it looks great. The subject — ‘how to tame the dragon’, ie China — couldn’t be more important. Get your copy here
  • Each month we produce a similarly stunning print issue. As well as great essays on politics, we have brilliant arts, books and life sections, edited by Dominic Green, with reviews and essays by some of the best writers in the English language. If you want to know what books to read in the next few months, there is no better guide. We also offer Lara Prendergast’s fantastic section on Food and Drink, two subjects which The Spectator takes very seriously indeed
  • A subscription also gives you full access to our amazing website, which provides fresh, astute and beautifully written commentary on the day’s news and much, much more.
  • Get your first three months of The Spectator for just $9.99
  • Or, as part of our flash sale, for $79 you’ll get a year’s subscription, a Spectator Parker pen and a $20 Amazon voucher
