The Casual Vacancy: J.K. Rowling Book Title, Details Revealed

by at . Comments

J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame has finally revealed some details, including the title, of her upcoming novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy.

It's a "blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising" about a parish council election in a small English town, called Pagford.

Reads a description of the book by Little, Brown publishers:

"Pagfod 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."

The unexpected death of council member Barry Fairweather at an early age will send the town into the "biggest war the town has yet seen."

"Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?" the J.K. Rowling novel blurb continues.

The Casual Vacancy and its 480 pages are due out September 27.
