JK Rowling's Adult Novel 'The Casual Vacancy' Book Cover Released


Just less than 30 minutes ago when Little, Bronwn and Company released the cover of the most-awaited first adult novel of JK Rowling - 'The Casual Vacancy.' On the cover is the "X" mark in the box, talking about election ballots.

From their first press release, Barry Fairweather is now Barry Fairbrother. Little, Brown and Company said it was an error.

the casual vacancyWhen Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock.

Pagford 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.

And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity, and unexpected revelations?

A big novel about a small town, The Casual Vacancy is J. K. Rowling’s first novel for adults. It is the work of a storyteller like no other.

Notes to Editors

Barry Fairbrother’s surname was incorrectly given as Fairweather in our original press release. This was Little, Brown UK’s error, and we are correcting it now.
