Delight: Special 60th Anniversary Edition

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

J.B. Priestley first made his reputation in the literary world by virtue of his essays, especially short essays that captured the essence of a moment or a taste of magic; and his talents were never better displayed than in the collection entitled "Delight". For here are more than 100 brief pieces that capture and record the moments of wonder and beauty that are found beneath the surface of everyday experience. Every essay bears that unique stamp of JBP as he refers to the pleasures of music, theatre, travel, sport, playing games, childhood, etc. Delights like Reading Detective Stories in Bed, Trying New Blends of Tobacco, the Sound of a Football, Long Trousers...and even the delight of Not Going! Terrific stuff!
Great Northern Books did fans of Priestley a great favour when they brought out a 60th anniversary edition in 2009, for the book had long been unavailable. The anniversary edition contains, too, an introduction by Priestley's son, Tom.

CONDITION: Just the slightest of bumps to top corner of front board and minor foxing to top edge of pages but otherwise in very good condition being clean and bright.
