In an extremely brief item in the Scotsman (“JK split fuelled Potter’s anger“), well, it’s too brief to summarize without a quote becoming redundant:
HARRY Potter author JK Rowling has revealed the boy wizard’s anger stems from the break-up of her first marriage.
She said her split from Jorge Arantes in 1993 was a dark period, adding: “A part of Harry’s anger is my own.”
I sure hope she starts writing another bestselling seven-book series soon, so we can go back to hearing about the stories on the pages. I have a feeling that next we’re going to learn that Rowling’s decision to write about a wizard came from her fondness for Olivia Newton-John’s “Magic.”
