First drafts of JK Rowl­ing’s wizard books show it’s not just her new book that’s full of swear­ing HARRY ROT­TER!

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE - By REX ROW­LANDS

THE lit­er­ary world was shocked this week when JK Rowl­ing’s new book

was re­leased and it was packed to the brim with swear­ing and sex scenes.

Set in a ru­ral English vil­lage and its Parish Coun­cil elec­tions it seems an un­usual set­ting to be rammed full of four let­ter filth.

And some crit­ics have also hit out at the au­thor for be­ing so rude when she has a huge schoolage fan base.

But amaz­ingly our team of crack in­ves­ti­ga­tors have tracked down the first draft of the Ed­in­burgh writer’s Harry Pot­ter books.

And as you can see in their orig­i­nal form, they were not for the faint-hearted.

Lit­er­ary ex­pert Hans An­ton Jank­ins said: “They cer­tainly show the work in a dif­fer­ent light.

“It’s go­ing to cause a sen­sa­tion, al­though I un­der­stand they were bought off a bloke in a pub for twenty quid so I would like to ver­ify their au­then­tic­ity.”
