If you are a fan of Harry Potter, this might excite you. J.K Rowling is set to release her latest book on the 27th of September. Sorry, but there won’t be wizards on flying brooms because it is for the grown ups!
The book’s title was announced on Thursday by Little, Brown & Co. along with a brief plot synopsis and publication date. It is about the “blackly comic” tale of rivalry and duplicity in a small English town.
It opens with the sudden death of a popular man whose unexpected demise shocks the town. The battle for his seat on the local council sets off “the biggest war the town has yet seen,” with rich people fighting poor, parents battling their teenagers, and wives in conflict with their husbands.
The publisher said the 480-page novel will be sold as an e-book and audio download as well as in traditional hardback form.
The book will be Rowling’s first post-Potter effort. Her seven-volume saga about the adventures of a boy wizard became one of the most successful fictional series in history and led to a series of extremely popular films. The seven Harry Potter novels have sold 450 million copies and have been translated into 74 languages.
All that made Rowling a very, very rich lady!
