the_croupier: (book review)
Her publisher has posted a summary of J.K. Rowling's upcoming novel, A Casual Vacancy.

Most authors seem to flame out horribly when their first book is a gargantuan success. It's not just that their sales never match that first triumph--how could they?--but that even the premises of their later works seem incredibly dull.

But, you know what? Reading that summary has me really looking forward to the book. It sounds like it could be hilarious and plays to her strengths.

A black comedy about petty, mean-spirited, local politics? From her? I am so completely there.
