Details from JK Rowling's New Novel

Publisher Little Brown has recently revealed some details about The Casual Vacancy, the new novel from famed Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. The new novel will be the British author's first novel aimed towards adults, and will have dark comedic undertones. The novel will run for 480 pages, and will ship on September 27th, 2012.

The book will be published worldwide in the English language in hardback, ebook, unabridged audio download, and on CD.

The Casual Vacancy Description, straight from the publisher:

When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little 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 fa├žade 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?
