The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling

The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling lands on the shelves of my shop, where it will be found in my Fiction Author: R section.

London: Little, Brown, 2012, Hardback in dust wrapper.

From the cover: 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?

Very Good in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper which is a little pulled at the head of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight.

Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 503 pages. 9½” x 6¼”.
