Rowling began writing the first Harry Potter novel, "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" (known as "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" in the US), while working as a teacher and living on welfare. The book was published in 1997 and became an instant bestseller, leading to six more books in the series, each of which was a commercial and critical success.

Aside from the Harry Potter series, Rowling has also written other novels, such as "The Casual Vacancy" and "The Cuckoo's Calling" under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. She has also written several screenplays, including "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," and its sequels.

Despite her success, Rowling has also faced controversy, particularly surrounding her views on transgender issues. She has been criticized for comments she has made about transgender individuals, and her stance has led to calls to boycott her work.

Overall, Rowling's impact on literature and pop culture has been significant, and her Harry Potter series has become a beloved cultural phenomenon.

Book Description

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child novel review by J. K. Rowling

The official playscript of the original West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places. The playscript for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was originally released as a ‘special rehearsal edition’ alongside the opening of Jack Thorne’s play in London’s West End in summer 2016. Based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, the play opened to rapturous reviews from theatregoers and critics alike, while the official playscript became an immediate global bestseller. This revised paperback edition updates the ‘special rehearsal edition’ with the conclusive and final dialogue from the play, which has subtly changed since its rehearsals, as well as a conversation piece between director John Tiffany and writer Jack Thorne, who share stories and insights about reading playscripts. This edition also includes useful background information including the Potter family tree and a timeline of events from the wizarding world prior to the beginning of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
