Loved by some of the greatest modern authors, and acclaimed by critics, this guide to stylish prose was written by a Cambridge don and veteran of Bletchley Park. Imbued with a lifetime of wit and wisdom, it retains its power today. Writing powerfully and persuasively has never mattered so much - and Style is the perfect guide for the busy, the ambitious and the poetic. Taking readers through the ten points of effective prose style, F. L. Lucas provides a tour of the best that has been written and said in any language. Wry, perceptive and filled with a colossal range of quotations and anecdotes, the book reads like a personal conversation on the art of writing well - with a master of the art.The best book on the art of writing that I know is F. L. Lucas Style. (Joseph Epstein, New Criterion, June 2011).
