The cover has a simple design, with a red and yellow motif and a central image of a box with a black check mark inside.
The book, titled “The Casual Vacancy,” will be about the struggle to fill a vacancy on a parish council in an English town and will be for adults. Little, Brown has stated the book will be 512 pages, calling it "a big book about a small town."
