J.K.Rowling. Nespodivana vakansia. (The Casual Vacancy)
"In Pagford, a local council member Barry Fairbrother aged forty-five dies suddenly. This event shocked local residents. It seemed that life was idyllic in the provincial English cozy town with a cobbled square and an ancient monastery, but in the heart of the town, behind this attractive facade, a real war was waged. The wealthy fight against the poor, teenagers – against parents, women – against their husbands, teachers – against their students... The unexpected vacancy at Pagford council has any chance to soon provoke the town for a war, virtually the largest in its history. Who will win the elections dominated by passions, double-dealing, and unexpected revelations?

This is a great novel about a small town and the first book by J.K. Rowling for adults. An exciting work produced by an incomparable storyteller."
