(From the publisher):
The Evolution Man
is a novel about your basic upwardly mobile Pleistocene cave family - as they come down from trees (except for Uncle Vanya, who insists that it's the stupidest thing man ever did), dislodge a family of bears from the best cave in the neighborhood, and widen their digestive horizons to keep down things not only disgusting but disagreeable as well. Life cannot be all snails and sweetbreads.
Recorded here is the correct version of the invention of fire, the first intellectual argument about shadows, and an eye-witness account of the first human courtship.
