Room at the Top

by John Braine

"The hero, Joe Lampton, was brought up on the fringes of poverty and squalor in an ugly North Country town.  He has emerged with one overriding aim: to fight his way up into the bright world of money and influence.
So, when he moves to a new town and a new job and starts to move among comfortably-off, intelligent people, it looks as if the campaign is succeeding.  Since he is an attractive and energetic young man, it is not long before a very pretty girl with a rich father falls in love with him."
