Our Book of the Week is Barbara Kingsolver's wonderful new novel Demon Copperhead. Told by its eponymous protagonist, a red-headed child born to a teenage mother in an opiate-infused Appalachia, Kingsolver's novel, like a modern-day parallel to Charles Dickens's David Copperfield, is full of sharp observation of social ills underlaid with deep compassion and expressed with a great joy for language, character and story.
