J K Rowling is just all right with me
I enjoyed the first two books in the Cormoran Strike detective series penned by Robert Galbraith (aka J K Rowling) and am keen to get started on the new one, Career of Evil. Still, this piece by James McCann on the absence of hysteria (or anything, really) surrounding its launch makes salutory reading: http://ripitup.com.au/culture/launch-days-for-new-j-k-rowling-books-arent-quite-what-they-used-to-be#.VicyqGQrJsY
Let us never forget, though, that J K Rowling almost single handedly held back the tide of non-reading for the young.
