Since its launch in 1992 The Oldie has attracted the country’s wittiest writers. They know the magazine will only publish the truly original rather than the usual formulaic features and interviews. The selection is a reminder of its glorious contributors: William Trevor, Auberon Waugh, Miles Kington, Patricia Highsmith, Anthony Sampson and Jeffrey Bernard among others.
