They are compar…

They are comparing Rowling’s new book to Jonathan Franzen. I think I will cry. “The Corrections” was one of the few books that depressed me so thoroughly, that it left a lingering bad aftertaste that comes back to me even now when I think about it. Harry Potter is just one of those things that you loved, growing up in the 90s. I grew up with Harry, and I’d even seriously considered getting a Deathly Hallows tattoo at one point to sort of mark the passing of an era, my childhood, everything- sort of as a reminder- but anyway that’s besides the point.

The point is, yes I’m fully aware that it’s “The Casual Vacancy”, not “Harry Potter and the Casual Vacancy”, but did it have to be Jonathan fucking Franzen?
