About the Author: John Braine

John Gerard Braine was born in Bradford, Yorkshire in 1922. He sprang to immediate fame in 1957 with publication of his first novel, Room at the Top, which was a critical success and a major bestseller in England and America and was adapted for the screen in an Oscar-winning 1959 film starring Simone Signoret and Laurence Harvey. His second novel, The Vodi (1959), met with mixed reviews and a disappointing reception, but was Braine’s favourite of his own works. His next book, Life at the Top (1962), a sequel to Room at the Top, sold well and was filmed in 1965.

Braine, who was commonly associated with what the British media dubbed the ‘Angry Young Men’ movement of working-class writers disenchanted with the traditional British class system, continued writing until his death in 1986, though as of 2013, all his works were out of print. Recently, there has been renewed interest in Braine’s work, with Valancourt Books’ reissues of Room at the Top and The Vodi, and a 2012 BBC miniseries adaptation of Room at the Top.

Esta es la historia del imparable ascenso de Joe Lampton, un genuino trepa de clase obrera, encantador y caradura, que se abre paso como puede en la estricta Inglaterra de los primeros años de la posguerra. Atrapado en un deprimente pueblo industrial de Yorkshire, el oportunista Lampton, contable municipal cuyas principales aficiones son la cerveza y las jóvenes casaderas, aspira a crearse una «reputación social», para lo cual no dudará en ganarse el aprecio de las fuerzas vivas del lugar.
Novela emblemática del movimiento de los «Jóvenes Airados» británicos, y un auténtico fenómeno de ventas en su época, Un lugar en la cumbre constituye un penetrante análisis de la sociedad de clases británica, y uno de los más divertidos ejemplos de cómo una nueva generación de escritores logró romper con las convenciones sociales y los códigos de comportamiento tradicionales.
