JK Rowling announces her new adult novel

It’s called The Casual Vacancy.

The story is centred on the death of Barry Fairweather, whose unexpected passing shocks the local villagers of Pagford.

Publishers Little, Brown & Co said: “Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war.”
