With the imminent release of her first post-Harry Potter book, The Casual Vacancy, The New Yorker has secured an indepth feature with the British author, and fortunately for the rest of us, it’s available free online. It’s an interesting read, despite a strange moment where the writer feels the need to let us know that Rowling’s wearing too much foundation. Flavorwire has some key quotes.
