September's In the Queue

The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling is blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising. It is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults and an exciting new beginning for her. The little town of Pagford is not a nice quiet idyllic English village. It is a town in turmoil. When Barry Fairbrother passes away unexpectedly, the largest war the town has ever seen begins. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations? Rowling's first adult novel is destined to be a blockbuster!

This novel is an enthralling family drama which heralds the arrival of a major new voice in contemporary fiction.  I can't wait to read more novels by this author.
