A few days ago, we learned that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling’s next literary offering would come in the form of a novel for grown-ups called The Casual Vacancy. Those who are counting down the days until they can get their hands on the book have to wait until September, however it’s not too early to pre-order.
Amazon.com already has the book set up for pre-order in hardcover, audio and the Kindle edition (e-Book). The website also has a brief plot synopsis for the story, which builds onto what we already knew about the focus on a town. Here’s what Amazon has listed for the description for The Casual Vacancy
When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.
War, drama, and an election, not to mention “unexpected revelations”? Sounds intriguing! While this book sounds very different from the magical world in the Harry Potter series, Rowling certainly demonstrated her knack for building an exciting, imaginative world full of well-developed characters and lots of drama among them in that series, and that experience may serve her well with this story. As a fan, I’ll be eager to “visit” Pagford and meet the characters involved in this story.
