No, no, not that kind of adult novel, I am refering to J.K. Rowling's new novel geared at adults, The Casual Vacancy, which is due out in September. Described thus by Little, Brown,
"...set in a small English town called Pagford, which comes undone after one of its denizens, a man in his early 40s named Barry Fairweather, unexpectedly dies. The event shakes the town and reveals the rampant unrest bubbling under the surface in the deceptively perfect hamlet." Full article here.
I am not sure that I will read it, as I am still fist-shaking-angry at Rowling for her damn epilogue in HP7.
