It is expected to top the bestseller list this year, the new novel by J.K. Rowling titled The Casual Vacancy is launched worldwide today. The Casual Vacancy has been described as "a rural comedy of manners, that, having taken on state-of-the-nation social themes, builds into black melodrama." Set in rural Britain, the plot is centered around an election for a council position after the sudden death of the former leader. The story reveals the little wars behind the idyll, where parents and kids, husbands and wives, teachers and kids fight their daily battles with each other.
