Cover Art for J.K. Rowling’s “The Casual Vacancy” Released

The cover for J.K. Rowling’s adult novel The Casual Vacancy has been revealed. This is Rowling’s first adult novel and it is set to hit book stores on September 27, 2012. The novel is going to be 512 pages long. Here is an updated plot summary from Rowling’s publisher:

“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 unexpected revelations?

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.”

What do you think of the cover? Is this a book that might interest you as a reader?
