Can you believe it? Her new book has been announced! I knew she was writing something, but I was excepting it to take another 10 years, lol. It is an adult book called The Casual Vacancy and will be released September 27, 2012! Here is the blurb from Goodreads:
When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little 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 unexpected revelations?
It sounds really interesting to me. I will definitely read it, because she is my favorite author! Will most likely buy it, too!
What do you all think?
