RACHEL JOYCEA masterclass. RICHARD POWERSMasterful. Pulitzer PrizePowerful. GuardianA work of genius. KATE MOSSEDemon Copperhead is a once-in-a-generation novel that breaks and mends your heart in the way only the best fiction can.

Demons 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 isnt an idea, its as natural as the grass grows. For a generation growing up in this world, at the heart of the modern opioid crisis, addiction isnt an abstraction, its neighbours, parents, and friends. Family could mean love, or reluctant foster care. 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 hes 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.
