导语

  

    英国作家、“哈利·波特之母”J.K.罗琳第一本为成人创作的小说《临时空缺》将于9月27日在全球发售。这部黑色幽默小说的将背景设在一座看似诗情画意实则暗藏争斗的英国小镇,它讲述了小镇表面平静下的种种勾心斗角。
    新书以人到中年的巴里·费尔韦瑟之死为开头,他的死给佩格弗德(Pagford)小镇带来了不小的震动。佩格弗德看起来就是一个典型的英国田园小镇,有一个铺满鹅卵石的市场和一座古老的修道院,但随着剧情展开,读者会发现小镇平静的假象背后隐藏着激烈的矛盾:富人和穷人,少年和父母,妇人和丈夫,老师和学生……佩格弗德小镇实际上并不是第一眼看上去那样, 而且巴里留下来的小镇议会空席也成了小镇有史以来的最大矛盾的导火索,谁又能赢得这场充满激情、欺诈和黑幕的选举呢?
    今年2月,罗琳首次宣布新书计划时即表示,哈利·波特系列的成功给了她探索新领域的自由。七册《哈利·波特》小说在全球范围售出4.5亿册,被改编成8部电影,译成74种语言。《哈利·波特》系列的热销让读者对《临时空缺》充满期待,丹尼亦表示《临时空缺》仅在英国一国就能轻易创出销售量过百万册的佳绩。

内容提要

  

    THE CASUAL VACANCY
    J.K. Rowling
    Book Description:
    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 fa?ade 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 town’s 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?
    Blackly comic, thought‐provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K.Rowling’s  first novel for adults.
