John Boynton Priestley (1894-1984) was pre-eminently a dramatist and a novelist. Many of his works have become 20th century literary classics, among them 'The Good Companions', 'Angel Pavement', 'An Inspector Calls' and 'Time and the Conways'. He was a founder of the campaign for nuclear disarmament and a champion of public lending rights. In literary, social and political terms he was very much 'a man for all seasons'.
