J.K. Rowling’s New Novel Announced

The Little, Brown Book Group has announced the publication date of the next J.K. Rowling novel.

Titled The Casual Vacancy, the new novel by Rowling — who gained fame as the author of a series of books known as Harry Potter books — is said by The Bookseller to be a “village black comedy.”

The tale takes place in an English village called Pagford. The people who live there are called Paggles, I’m guessing. It’s said to be “blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising.” That sounds like a Tyler Perry project!

“Passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations” are on the menu, and The Casual Vacancy will be published 27 September 2012 by Little, Brown.

And she's a billionaire, too!
