Longlisted for the 2023 Women's Prize for Fiction THE MULTI-MILLION COPY SELLING AUTHOR AN OPRAH BOOK CLUB PICK 'Extraordinary.' - OPRAH 'Electrifying. . . Every sentence here sizzles.' -Daily Mail 'It's EPIC. Righteously angry, DEEPLY moving and exquisitely written.' -MARIAN KEYES 'A true highlight of 2022 fiction.' -Independent 'A fantastic read.' - EMILY MAITLIS 'Book of the Month' - Women & Home 'A masterclass.' - RICHARD POWERS 'A powerful tale.' - Good Housekeeping '[Kingsolver] means to save us by telling us stories. . . She comes closer than anyone else I know.' - ANN PATCHETT Demon Copperhead is a once-in-a-generation novel that breaks and mends your heart in the way only the best fiction can.Demon's story begins with his traumatic birth to a single mother in a single-wide trailer, looking 'like a little blue prizefighter.' For the life ahead of him he would need all of that fighting spirit, along with buckets of charm, a quick wit, and some unexpected talents, legal and otherwise.In the southern Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, poverty and addiction aren't ideas. They're as natural as the grass grows. For Demon, born on the wrong side of luck, the affection and safety he craves is as remote as the ocean he dreams of seeing one day. The wonder is in how far he's willing to travel to try and get there.Suffused with truth, anger and compassion, Demon Copperhead is an epic tale of love, loss and everything in between. What readers are saying: 'An amazing, beautifully written story I cannot wait to recommend to everyone I know.' 'Powerful and brilliant. To immerse yourself in a Kingsolver novel is to put yourself in the hands of a master.' 'A must read and heart-opening book.' 'Raw, angry, starkly beautiful. . . Genuinely one of the best books I've ever read.' 'Amazingly complex. . . [Kingsolver] is, by far, one of the greatest living authors'
