Back in April, it was announced that Harry Potter darling J.K. Rowling would put hand to computer for a book directed at a more adult audience.
In just a day, Rowling’s first book since the series that sold over 450 million copies and made her the most famous living author in the world comes out.
It’s called The Casual Vacancy and it’s “a comic tragedy,” five hundred and twelve pages long, and about some sort of rivalry. Most importantly, it contains multiple laughable references to genitalia.
Here are three excerpts to blush and cackle over:
“That miraculously unguarded vagina.”
“The leathery skin of her upper cleavage radiated little cracks that no longer vanished when decompressed.”
” …With an ache in his heart and in his balls.”
“The thing about fantasy — there are certain things you just don’t do in fantasy. You don’t have sex near unicorns. It’s an ironclad rule. It’s tacky,” Rowling casually stated in Ian Parker’s recent profile of her in The New Yorker.
