Cover art for J.K. Rowling’s new book ‘The Casual Vacancy’ revealed

J.K. Rowling’s new book, The Casual Vacancy, will be released this September from Little, Brown and Company publishers. Today, we have received the cover art for the book along with the official page count.


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 facade 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 audio edition of The Casual Vacancy will be read by Tom Hollander, an experienced star of stage and screen.

Published worldwide in the English language on September 27, 2012 in hardcover ($35.00), large print hardcover ($39.00), e-book ($19.99), unabridged audio download ($29.98), and on CD ($44.98)

The official page count for the book is at 512 pages long
