Pittsburghers Who Love Reading Message Board › December book:
It seems only fair to let you all know that our December book, _The Cuckoo's Calling_ by "Robert Galbraith," is in fact written by JK Rowling. The author wanted to use a pseudonym but was outed by someone else-- so, now everyone is reading the book, which hadn't sold many copies but received almost universal critical acclaim for its "debut" author.
"Writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, the Harry Potter creator wrote a crime novel called The Cuckoo’s Calling. The book is billed as a “classic crime novel”, written in the style of PD James and Ruth Rendell, according to the Sunday Times. Reviewers have described it as an “exhilarating debut." The book is described as “a gripping, elegant mystery steeped in the atmosphere of London – from the hushed streets of Mayfair to the backstreet pubs of the East End to the bustle of Soho.”"
