Demon Copperhead, Barbara Kingsolver
A re-imagined Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield story, set in the Appalachian Mountains, this large book (over 600 pages) explores the life of a boy born in a poverty-stricken area to a single mother and looks at the opioid crisis in southern America. But, also, the beauty of the backwoods and hollers mesmerizes Demon and shows, once again, that literary fiction bringing the wild into stories can provide an ecosystem of cultural and natural complexity and wonder.
