A Parthian shot from one of the most important figures in post-war British fiction, "The King's English "is the late Kingsley Amis's last word on the state of the language. More frolicsome than" Fowler's Modern Usage, " lighter than the "Oxford English Dictionary," and brimming with the strong opinions and razor-sharp wit that made Amis so popular--and so controversial--"The King's English "is a must for fans and language purists.
Octavo. Previous owner's name inked. [270 pages] First St. Martin's Paperback edition.
