Post J.K. Rowling's "The Casual Vacancy" cover art revealed, updated summary

The official cover art and updated synopsis for Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling's first book for adults, The Casual Vacancy, was released by publishers Little Brown and can be found below. It will be out September 27 worldwide.


Little, Brown and Company releases the cover for The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling, along with updated cover copy, details of the audio reader, and confirmed page count.

Published worldwide in the English language on September 27, 2012 in hardcover ($35.00), large print hardcover ($39.00), e-book ($19.99), unabridged audio download ($29.98), and on CD ($44.98)

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

Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but 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?

A big novel about a small town, The Casual Vacancy is J. K. Rowling’s first novel for adults. It is the work of a storyteller like no other.

The Casual Vacancy - 512 pages

The audio edition of The Casual Vacancy will be read by Tom Hollander, an experienced star of stage and screen.

Notes to Editors: Barry Fairbrother’s surname was incorrectly given as Fairweather in our original press release. This was Little, Brown UK’s error, and we are correcting it now.

Pre-order J.K. Rowling's 512-page book The Casual Vacancy now, via:

Amazon.com - The Casual Vacancy Hardcover | The Casual Vacancy Kindle
Amazon.co.uk - The Casual Vacancy Hardcover | The Casual Vacancy Kindle
Amazon Canada - The Casual Vacancy Hardcover | The Casual Vacancy Audio CD
