About the Author:

Fowler was for 17 years a teacher at Sedbergh School. He then lived and worked in London as a freelance writer for four years, before going to Guernsey to form a remarkable successful writing partnership with his brother Francis. Described by one of his pupils at Sedbergh as 'a man of great fastidiousness (moral and intellectual)', Fowler was a private scholar and keen sportsman, living a simple life in Guernsey, yet his remarkable guide to English usage has become one of the most celebrated reference books of the twentieth century.
