Great to see this Guardian editorial In Praise of … J.B. Priestley, which in a short piece manages to cover the excellence of his prose, his political campaigning and his attitude to the honours system (which has brought him into the news this week). Interesting also to follow up the letters, including one from the J.B. Priestley Society Chairman, and the comments on the editorial, many of which show great knowledge of and affection for Priestley’s works.
