From the Publisher
A big novel about a small town...
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 façade
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
A big novel about a small town, The Casual Vacancy is J.K.
Rowling''s first novel for adults. It is the work of a storyteller
like no other.
