From the appearance of the Devil in a provincial theatre, a pair of lovers who test each other s commitment in a department store s lift to three stories depicting the typical Yorkshire man, Mr Hebblethwaite, J. B. Priestley s short stories share the humour, social comment and faith in traditional English values of his novels. Along with Priestley s gift for characterisation and dialogue, What A Life! displays the generosity of spirit, and moral integrity, he showed throughout his life.
