The Globe and Mail / Associated Press| 'J.K. Rowling's next book called ‘The Casual Vacancy’' by The Associated Press at Last updated Thursday, Apr. 12, 2012 10:12AM EDT
"The effort will mark Rowling's first post-Potter effort. Her saga of the boy wizard became one of the most successful fictional series in history and led to a series of extremely popular films.
The new book, aimed at a grown-up audience, will be set in a seemingly idyllic English town called Pagford, the publisher said.
It opens with the sudden death of a popular man whose unexpected demise shocks the town, which is described as far more menacing than its pretty facade would indicate.
The publisher said that in reality Pagford is “a town at war” with rich people fighting the poor, parents battling their teenagers, and wives in conflict with their husbands.
The publisher said the book will be “blackly comic.”"
