Fiction Award Winner “Damon Copperhead”

In this novel, Barbara Kingsolver re-imagines the famous British writer Charles Dickens’ novel “David Copperfield” in modern rural America that combats poverty and opioid addiction.

A bestseller and #1 New York Times bestseller, the novel is a heart-warming novel that evokes a young hero’s unforgettable journey from birth to maturity.

The novel is about Damon Copperhead, who grows up in the southern Appalachian mountains of a teenage single mother in a trailer with no assets beyond his deceased father’s good looks and brassy hair, as he navigates life facing dangers in foster care, child labor, abandoned schools, athletic success, addiction, And overwhelming losses.

Dozens of years ago, Charles Dickens David Copperfield wrote from his experience as a survivor of poverty and its harm to children in his community. These problems have not yet been solved in our problem, and although the author follows the theme of Charles Dickens, knowledge of the events of Dickens’s novel is not a prerequisite for readers of this novel.

In the new novel, Barbara Kingsolver enlists Dickens’s rage and compassion, and above all his belief in the transformative powers of life. It also brings out protagonist Damon Copperhead’s thoughts on a new generation of lost boys, all those born in places they can’t imagine leaving behind.

It is noteworthy that Barbara Kingsolver is an American writer who grew up in rural Kentucky and obtained degrees in biology from DePauw University and the University of Arizona before becoming an independent writer and author. She lived at different times in her life in England, France and the Canary Islands and worked in Europe, Africa, Asia, Mexico and South America.
