When Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in the early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is apparently an English idea, with a cobbled square and ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty dimming is a city at war. Rich in war with the poor, adolescents at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their students. Pagford is not what it seems at first glance. And the empty seat left by Barry in the city council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the city has yet seen. Who will succeed in an election full of passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations? Darkly comical, provocative and constantly surprising, the unexpected vacancy is J. K. Rowling's first adult novel.
