J. B. Priestley (Author)
DescriptionDisillusioned scriptwriter Gregory Dawson is holed up in a Cornish hotel writing a script he must finish. A chance encounter in the bar sends him back in time to the doomed world of his youth before the slaughter of The First World War. Caught in his own past Dawson recounts his time within the closeknit Yorkshire community in which he came of age and the magic circle of the Alington family, in whose company he spent his happiest days. As this forgotten time takes on a new shape he slowly realises that to have any chance of a bright future he must first exorcise the tragic ghost of his past. ADDITIONAL CONTENT This new edition provides additional information about Priestley's background and his inspiration for the novel. It includes biographical detail which incorporates a `literary tour' of Bruddersford (the imaginary setting for the book based on Priestley's home town of Bradford.) In this way, it places the novel in a biographical and geographical context adding extra layers of interest for readers. In the author's own words, `Bright Day is crammed with profoundly autobiographical material.' Priestley's Bradford comes alive and glows.
