it’s not, says the cover of the best-selling author’s new book. Little, Brown and Company gave excited readers the first look at Rowling’s new title on their Facebook page.
The Casual Vacancy, Rowling’s first novel for adults, focuses on the little town of Pagford after the death of resident Barry Fairweather. The seemingly ideal town is not what it appears, and “war” quickly breaks out between parents and children, the rich and the poor, and so many more. The Casual Vacancy will be available on Sept. 27.
