The Casual Vacancy
Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy was J.K. Rowling’s first novel since the Harry Potter series. It was published in 2012 and adapted for the BBC and HBO television in 2015.
When Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the small town of Pagford is in shock. Seemingly an idyllic English town, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war. Rich at war with the poor, teenagers at war with parents, wives at war with husbands, teachers at war with students… Pagford is not what it seems. The empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes a catalyst for the biggest war the town has seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?
