English author J.B. Priestley had a long and prolific career writing in numerous genres, and achieved critical and popular success in each. After serving in World War II and attending Cambridge, he moved to London and made his name as a literary essayist. He had success as a novelist, playwright, literary critic, historian, and short story writer. His work was fueled by an optimistic view of England, but balanced by a realistic desire for improvement. His novels remain in print, and his plays are frequently revived.

The prolific writer, broadcaster and critic J.B. Priestley (1894-1984) is perhaps best known for his "time plays", such as An Inspector Calls and for his best-selling novels, most notably The Good Companions and Angel Pavement . However, his huge output of work also included essays, autobiography, social history, time theory and verse. Priestley also was active in politics, expressing his concerns (for instance about the nuclear arms race) through commentary and campaigning. Born and brought up in Bradford, his works often reflected his Yorkshire background, and his connections with the city were later marked by a public statue and the naming of the J.B. Priestley Library at the University of Bradford. He was married three times: in 1919 to Emily Tempest, who died in 1925, to Jane Wyndham Lewis, and in 1953 to the archeologist and writer Jacquetta Hawkes.
