In February we reported J.K. Rowling is working on her next novel. Today Rowling’s announced the title of that novel. The Casual Vacancy is set for a Sept. 27 worldwide release.
Little Brown announced the details. “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.”
The novel has been deemed as, “Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising,” by Little Brown.
The book is set for hardback, ebook, audio download and CD editions on Sept. 27.
