Read full description of the books:
The jealous god of John Braine's fourth novel is the censorious conscience of a young schoolmaster, Vincent Durgarven. Educated in a severely pious atmosphere, Vincent struggles to fulfill his mother's wish that he become a priest. More the product of duty than conviction, these efforts shatter when Laura, a lovely, black-haired girl, appears in the Charbury Public Library. Vincent's obsession with her soon dominates his life.

Read information about the authorJohn 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.
