We can be surprised by the news, but… no, it’s not another chapter in the Harry Potter series! Little, Brown and Company has announces last Thrusday J.K. Rowling’s new novel, a work for an adult audience (?!).
The plot is about the death of Barry Fairweather and the shock of the town he was living in, Pagford. After that, we will discover that (oh, surprise!) things are never like we thought. Like the publisher said, it will be a “blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising”.
“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?”
We will see if this adult novel is as ‘adult’ as they said.
We really doubt it!
