JK Rowling’s Next Book Get a Title and Release Date – Plus we Have Plot Details

It was announced a few months ago that JK Rowling was preparing to release her first Post-Potter novel – something that will have nothing to do with magical creatures and wizards.

The title was announced today by her publisher Little, Brown & Co. The book will be called The Casual Vacancy.

It will be released worldwide in hardback, e-book and as an audio download and CD on 27 September.

A little bit of the plot was released as well – according to the BBC:

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.”

The company describes the tale as being “blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising”.
