News: The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling


“Who can hinestly say they haven’t been waiting for this?”

J.K. Rowling announced details about her book called The Casual Vacancy. It’s the first book that she will have published since Harry Potter.

Author: J K Rowling

Genre: Drama, Age: Adult

Released: 27th September 2012

According to her Official Website:


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)


I don’t know how her style of writing, which changed considerably throughout the Harry Potter books, will convey the story in an adult book. However, I’m confident that JKR will sell millions of pre-orders and copies around the world.

I’m really excited about this. It’s definitely one to watch in the coming months. September can’t come soon enough!
