    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

    If you could sum up The Casual Vacancy in three words, what would they be?

    powerful, thought-provoking, humorous


    What other book might you compare The Casual Vacancy to and why?

    I certainly wouldn't compare it to Harry Potter, which many reviewers have...


    Which character – as performed by Tom Hollander – was your favorite?

    I thought Hollander was a superb reader. Many complained that they couldn't keep the characters straight. I had no problem knowing who I was hearing thanks to Hollander's rendition of each voice. If I had to choose a favorite, I'd say Krystal Wheedon or Howard Mollison.
