JK Rowling | A Casual Vacancy parodied before it is released | A Vacant Casualty
Is this a first? A book getting parodied before it even comes out. Patty O'Furniture's imagination has run riot for this one. The press release is promising ... "a potty-mouthed parody..." "a spectacularly silly rural detective novel..." "Nothing ever seems to happen in the sleepy English town of Mumford– unless you count the man with the axe in his back, staggering down the street getting blood everywhere and leaving a vacancy on the Parish Council . . ." All very silly.
