J.K. Rowling's 'Casual Vacancy' Book Cover Revealed!

The cover artwork for J.K. Rowling‘s highly anticipated new novel “The Casual Vacancy” has been revealed!

Here’s the book’s official synopsis: When 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.

“The Casual Vacancy” has been confirmed to be 512 pages long and will be released on September 27.

Will the US release be entitled “The Casual Empty Spot” so as to appeal to us stupid Americans?

@Hamlet: he’s probably referring to the title change for the first Harry Potter book.
