“Mr and Mrs Dursley of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.” This is the very first sentence in the Harry Potter series. Seven books and eight movies later, J.K. Rowling is still enjoying financial success. Books based in the world of Harry and He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named continue to be published by the thousands. How have these stories become such an extraordinary cultural phenomenon? In the series, "ordinary" non-magical people are called muggles. But who and what is normal according to J.K. Rowling is, of course, very subjective, as evidenced by her recent transphobic statements. Is the magic over for you?
