Post J.K. Rowling's new novel, 'The Casual Vacancy', out September 27, 2012

J.K. Rowling announced today that her new book, the first after completing the Harry Potter series, aimed at adults will be called 'The Casual Vacancy', out September 27, 2012. More on that can be read below.

Little, Brown announces details of J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.

When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.

Seemingly an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war.

Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…Pagford is not what it first seems.

And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?

Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.

Publication date 27th September 2012 (UK & US)

Pre-order J.K. Rowling's 480-page The Casual Vacancy now, at: - The Casual Vacancy Hardcover | The Casual Vacancy Kindle - The Casual Vacancy Hardcover | The Casual Vacancy Kindle

Sounds good! I'm looking forward!

Sometimes I remember the darkness of my past, bringing back these memories I wish I didn't have.

Sometimes I think of letting go and never looking back and never moving forward so there'd never be a past.
