An Oprahs Book Club SelectionDemon is a voice for the ages—akin to Huck Finn or Holden Caulfield—only even more resilient. Im crazy about this book, which parses the epidemic in a beautiful and intimate new way. I think its her best.” —Beth Macy, author of Dopesick“An Appalachian David Copperfield…Demon Copperhead reimagines Dickenss story in a modern-day rural America contending with poverty and opioid addiction…Like Dickens, she is unblushingly political and works on a sprawling scale…Episode by episode she persuasively conveys the mind of a teenage boy…Its hard to think of another living novelist who could take a stab at Dickens and rise above the level of catastrophe.” —New York TimesFrom the New York Times bestselling author of Unsheltered and Flight Behavior, a brilliant novel which enthralls, compels, and captures the heart as it evokes a young heros unforgettable journey to maturity.“Anyone will tell you the born of this world are marked from the get-out, win or lose.”Demon Copperhead is set in the mountains of southern Appalachia. Its the story of a boy born to a teenaged single mother in a single-wide trailer, with no assets beyond his dead fathers good looks and copper-colored hair, a caustic wit, and a fierce talent for survival. In a plot that never pauses for breath, relayed in his own unsparing voice, he braves the modern perils of foster care, child labor, derelict schools, athletic success, addiction, disastrous loves, and crushing losses. Through all of it, he reckons with his own invisibility in a popular culture where even the superheroes have abandoned rural people in favor of cities.Many generations ago, Charles Dickens wrote David Copperfield from his experience as a survivor of institutional poverty and its damages to children in his society. Those problems have yet to be solved in ours. Dickens is not a prerequisite for readers of this novel, but he provided its inspiration. In transposing a Victorian epic novel to the contemporary American South, Barbara Kingsolver enlists Dickens anger and compassion, and above all, his faith in the transformative powers of a good story. Demon Copperhead speaks for a new generation of lost boys, and all those born into beautiful, cursed places they cant imagine leaving behind. .Read by Barbara Kingsolver.
