Grumbling at Large by J.B. Priestley - Notting Hill Editions
A delightful selection of Priestley's essays, drawing on five decades of his writing. Priestley defined the essay as a prose masterpiece in miniature and understood that to perfect the form, the essayist had to stand naked and shivering in the very first sentence. A prodigious essayist, Priestley expressed his unique thoughts on a diverse range of subjects from the delights of smoking to the futility of conferences. Witty, controversial and sometimes grumpy, Priestley's essays reveal the many faces of one of Britain s most distinguished writers.
