It was perhaps symbolic that Hailey was born in Luton.
Hailey eventually had dual British and Canadian citizenship, but the geographical base of his novels and their atmosphere, plus his own liking for loud checked suits, could just as easily suggest a midwestern American.
Hailey was the son of a factory worker and a mother who wanted better things for her son.

 Scotsman.com News - Obituaries - Arthur Hailey
Always a staunch Conservative, Hailey was dismayed at the defeat of Churchill in 1945 and after he was demobilised in 1947 (as a flight lieutenant) he emigrated to Canada and took out dual nationality.
Hailey, at first flattered, thought: "Why didn’t I do that?" So with meticulous care and research he wrote The Final Diagnosis about a pathologist who caused the death of a child by a wrong diagnosis.
Hailey returned to England at least twice a year to see friends (and his stockbroker - he followed the markets avidly) and the theatre agent Larry Dalzell often had lunch with him to discuss projects and casting.
