J.K. Rowling's new book is definitely not for children9/25/2012
If you were thinking of gifting a copy of J.K. Rowling's new book "The Casual Vacancy" to a "Harry Potter"-loving kid: don't. When the bestselling author said her new novel was intended for adults, she meant it. According to a profile of Rowling published in The New Yorker, the upcoming book contains references to "the leathery skin of [a female character's] upper cleavage," a boy with "an ache in his heart and in his balls," and a "miraculously unguarded vagina." Rowling added that she was ready for a change in genre because "there are certain things you just don't do in fantasy. You don't have sex near unicorns ... It's tacky." Gasp! Won't somebody please think of the children?! [Source]
